Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History Reviews


Be bold. Be courageous. Be you. Be true. That's the message of this empowering, informative, and beautifully illustrated book. * Brightly *
This one is for shelves everywhere. Read it with all your sons and daughters and share it far and wide. * Picture Books Blogger *
A book to put into primary classrooms, secondary school libraries, to buy for families, and to share and discuss wherever and whenever you can - I certainly intend to. * Red Reading Hub *
Although there is a little more recognition of BAME and diverse voices in history now, and a little more recognition that all people need to be represented in publishing, there is still a gap in the market for such titles. This beautiful little book aims to plug one gap. * Minerva Reads *
As long as we're celebrating complicated women - women who have done good and bad things, women who have succeeded, women who have failed but tried, women who are brilliant on a world stage, women who are brilliant in their own communities - I'll carry on pressing these books into the hands of women I know. * Phoenix magazine *
