Editorial Reviews

Review

"Vashti Harrison's adorable, idiosyncratic drawings...are poster-worthy."
O, the Oprah Magazine --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

From School Library Journal

POPK-Gr 4—An artist's social media sensation is lovingly brought to life in this standout title. Initially a personal project for Black History Month, Harrison's collection highlights 40 notable black women throughout U.S. history. Each entry includes two to three paragraphs of biographical text, opposite which nearly identical figures (most are drawn facing forward with cherubic smiles and closed eyes) hold center stage of their full-page portrait, framed by simple yet clever backgrounds that contextualize their achievements. Audre Lorde, for example, stands before muted brown bookshelves—keen eyes will discern that the books displayed feature her poetry and prose. Leadership is embraced in forms past and present and across various disciplines; renowned abolitionists Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth are joined by Air Force General Marcelite J. Harris and filmmaker Julie Dash. A concluding "More Little Leaders" segment addresses the difficulty of selecting 40 women to represent a historical legacy and offers miniature renditions of additional icons, including Gabby Douglas, Lorraine Hansberry, and the Williams sisters. Useful back matter provides multimedia sources for inevitably curious readers. The amount of information included makes this book ideal for budding researchers or for small groups, although the heartwarming digital images will garner a younger audience, too—kids of all ages will love poring over Harrison's tender artwork. VERDICT Beautifully designed and chock-full of information, this is a fantastic survey of black women who made and continue to make history. A must-have for youth nonfiction collections.—Ashleigh Williams, School Library Journal --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable illustrations, even better mini bios
By WKJones on March 8, 2018
I purchased this book for my daughter not realizing the bios were as in-depth as they are. I say the illustrations and sort of assumed it was a book geared toward a younger crowd. I’m so glad that I was wrong. The bios included in the book range from women I’d heard of and studied to women I was glad to be learning about. While the bios are in-depth and include complex words, my toddler will sit two to three bios at a time. And I know as she gets older she’ll sit through more and we can discus both the history (and the new vocabulary).

I love it. I hope to see more from Vashti Harrison soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product!
By Kaylee on December 6, 2017
Beautiful illustrations with a one page summary of each woman's life. Covers more women than I anticipated, which is a bonus. I love that there is a book covering women from Black history all in one place. I want my four girls growing up to know about women of all races and time periods that have made a difference, not just white girls/women who look like them. I think for women to really move forward in our world, we all (men and women) need to understand all women and their unique contributions in their unique spheres, so thank you Vashti Harrison for providing this beautiful, informative, and well done product so we can have this learning tool in our home for my girls to grow up reading these women's stories.
I included an example of what each Bio page is like. So cute and beautiful and easy to read!

I’m a 28 year old woman and I bought this book for myself! I am completely in love with how soft the cover is and the illustrations are beautiful! This book was needed! I really really hope the author comes out with a book about Bold Men in Black History also

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for Older Kids
By Kristi on August 25, 2018
Let me start off by saying that this is a very nice book. The illustrations are quite cute and have an endearing quality about them. This includes a very nice selection of black women. This goes way beyond Harriet Tubman and Maya Angelou(allthough they are included) and introduces many women who you will never learn about in K-12 education. However, I would not recommend this to younger children because its not written in a way that is engaging to them. As much as my 5 year old loves these illustrations, the writing just doesn’t excite her or keep her attention.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well.worth its money
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 21, 2020
So I got this for my just 4 year old boy who does like a book before bed. I've been on a quest to find books that aren't entirely full of white heterosexual middle class imagery. This had great reviews and suggested age was about 4 up.

Its a lovely book and actually I personally found it quite interesting, and informative. The illustrations are just lovely.

It is though a bit wordy for your average 4 year old reader. (Non reader) we have read the athlete ones as that's what he has chosen, and he liked those. He's a little young to understand some of the more complex words , but it's certainly one that will be referred back to over the next few years. I'll definitely be reading to my daughter when she's older too.

It makes a refreshing change to see some pages filled with strong powerful determined achieving Women.

Nice book well worth its money but id say 6 year old and upwards.
