I love it. I hope to see more from Vashti Harrison soon.
I included an example of what each Bio page is like. So cute and beautiful and easy to read!
I tried to start at the beginning, but we haven't yet talked about slavery and I shudder to explain its horrors to my precious little girl, so I decided to start at the back (Dominique Dawes, gymnast). This reverse historical order seems to resonate well with a young child.
I like the encyclopedic style, with each narrative standing on its own. There is enough said about each woman's childhood to which a little girl can connect.
Excellent work! We are proud to have this addition to our home library. Thank you, Vashti.
I was thoroughly pleased with what I seen, so much I copped one for the homie and his daughter. If you purchase this book, you will not be disappointed.
There have been only two things I have preordered in the past five years: J. Cole - For Your Eyes Only and this book. So far 2 for 2 on this preorder tip!

I own it as an adult and bought many as Christmas gifts for children.
They are empowering, educational and colourful.
A much needed piece of literature in black history to inform and empower us all. Its brilliant!
This book done a fantastic job of high lighting the positive attibutes of black women who stood up strong and fought for what they believed in.
The racism that many of them experienced back in the days would have been unbearable. But reading about their stories in this book made me feel proud to be a black woman and not to allow anybody to stop me from going after what I desire.
Also, I’m a big fan of Vashi Harrison’s illustrations so it was the perfect purchase!
