From School Library Journal
Toddler-PreS—Ten wide-eyed women trailblazers, from Ada Lovelace to Maria Tallchief, are presented in brightly colored spreads. In larger print, a rhyming couplet gives young readers a general idea of the road each subject paved, and on the opposite page, in smaller print, more information is disclosed. The final spread asks kids how they will change the world someday, while showcasing a dozen more inspirational figures. The bottom right corner of the last page has a circle with a question mark, offering children the opportunity to see themselves as future trailblazers. An empowering collective biography for board book bins and shelves.—Shelley M. Diaz, School Library Journal

Each page walks readers through a female trailblazer, including Ada Lovelace, Florence Nightingale, Coco Chanel, Ross Parks, Maria Tallchief, Wilma Rudolph, Sonia Sotomayor, Ruby Bridges, Maya Lin, and Malala Yousafzai. The book celebrates diversity by representing women of different ages, races, backgrounds, professions, time periods, and more. What a great message to sent to our children.
Each woman receives an entire two page spread with the left-hand side including a four line rhyming poem about the individual, while the right-hand side provides a few additional facts about her. The final two page spread includes 12 extra women with a brief description/accomplishment.
Visually, the book looks fantastic. Bright, bold colors. The drawings are illustrated, but have simple yet effective details. Structurally, the book feels sturdy.
We are very pleased with this purchase.
My only complaint is that Coco Chanel is included, and my reason for 4 stars. That squicked me out a bit, since it's known she had an affair with a Nazi agent and there is strong evidence that she herself was an agent for the Abwehr. I wish another woman would have been included instead, perhaps Vera Wang or Vivienne Westwood. Or even Noor Inayat Khan, Lise de Baissac or Sophia Scholl.
