Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on December 7, 2017
I preordered and was bursting with excitement to come home to the package on release day. My just turned 5 year old and I both loved the size, quality, and illustrations of "girls who are brown like me." We decided to read about one of these women each night at bedtime.
I tried to start at the beginning, but we haven't yet talked about slavery and I shudder to explain its horrors to my precious little girl, so I decided to start at the back (Dominique Dawes, gymnast). This reverse historical order seems to resonate well with a young child.
I like the encyclopedic style, with each narrative standing on its own. There is enough said about each woman's childhood to which a little girl can connect.
Excellent work! We are proud to have this addition to our home library. Thank you, Vashti.
