Bushel & Peck Books
A first-of-its-kind primer bursting with powerful first words girls will need to pursue their big dreams.
The vibrant, oversized board book comes packed with 1,000 brightly illustrated words, all interwoven with 100 female heroes and inspiring messages. Readers will learn colors with Frida Kahlo, animals with Jane Goodall, things that go with Amelia Earhart, fruits and vegetables with Julia Child, and more—but the words don't stop there. Girls will also find hundreds of powerful words on activism, government, science, engineering, and more to get them ready to blaze ahead and better the world!
“The diverse women covered span from historical Frida Kahlo and Amelia Earhart to the more modern Serena Williams and Jane Goodall. Such figures as Lek Chailert, who's fighting to protect Asian elephants in Thailand, may be new to adults, too. This volume also deviates from traditional concept books by promoting multiple ability levels….This range of content allows readers at many stages to visit and revisit the book. A fun, visual way to relate women, activism, and big ideas to children.”—Kirkus Reviews
