Top critical review
Lots of info, very little of human stories

My 7 year-old daughter wanted to know more about African American history, because she's in a very diverse school and has several close friends of color. I got her this and a few other highly rated titles of the same ilk. While the bios are thorough on the facts, there's little to nothing of the stories of these notable women, which my kids at least would be more interested in then a list of honors and awards they've won. Even a meaningful quotation or two from each, as in some other books we have of this kind, would give a greater sense of their unique humanity.
