What weabout it
This book is amazing itself! It tells the stories of great women in American history, and illustrates them in lush detail.


The book opens with Abigail Adams, who hopes readers “rise to honor and to fame, the ornament of your country and the blessing of your parents.”

You can tell this was a labor of love meant to honor not only the hundreds of (often unsung) historical figures within its pages, but the American girls who are reading.

Girls are illustrated, too—playing, imagining and dreaming of the future. The level of illustrative detail creates a sense of grandeur and magic, and effortlessly imparts historical context.
