About half of these women are the ones who tend to appear in every collective biography of women who made a difference: Harriet Tubman, Hellen Keller, Nelly Bly, Sally Ride, Sonia Sotomayor. But there are the others who don't come up as often: Florence Griffith Joyner, Margaret Chase Smith, and Virginia Apgar will likely be new names to most kids. Clinton did a good job of selecting women from a diversity of fields and cultural backgrounds, and she writes with a rhythm and pattern kids will get. Eventually they should be able to predict when the "she persisted" line is coming and say it with the reader. I liked Boiger's illustration style too. Overall, a good little biography compilation of movers and shakers for kids.
