I bought this for my daughter and she loves it. I didn't get it expecting it to be a deep dive into each woman's story (there are plenty of other books for that), I got it to spark her interest. To show her that there are, and have always been, women making history.

I bought this book for my daughter to grow up with. It's simplistic in the fact that it tells a very broad over view of each person. What makes it so great though is it opens the door for young people to ask questions about these women and learn more about them on their own. My cousin bought this for her daughter and I was so pleased she recommended it for me.

I bought this for my friend's daughter. I want her to grow up knowing the full range of possibilities that are open to her, and this book shows it.

Disappointingly Disney-ish. The idea of the book is good: 100 short biographies of strong and remarkable women , including those little-known to the Western culture. It is written in the form of one-page bedtime stories for pre- or elementary school kids. This might have worked if it was limited only to more simple, gentle stories like Helen Keller, Jane Austin and Jane Goodall. But to try telling in this way to a little girl, at bedtime, about more complex lives of Cleopatra and Eva Peron or the deaths of Hypatia or Anna Polytkovskaya? So the narrative by necessity becomes syrupy and whitewashed to the point of laughable and empty. My advise is: leaves this book on the shelf, tell your young daughter your own bedtime stories and buy real biographies of strong women for her older sisters. I grade books as Buy and Keep( BK), Read a Library Copy (RLC) and Once-I-Put-It-Down-I-Couldn’t-Pick-It-Up (OIPD-ICPU). Hate to say it about this book, but for me it was OIPD-ICPU.
