Review

As long as we're celebrating complicated women - women who have done good and bad things, women who have succeeded, women who have failed but tried, women who are brilliant on a world stage, women who are brilliant in their own communities - I'll carry on pressing these books into the hands of women I know. Phoenix magazine Although there is a little more recognition of BAME and diverse voices in history now, and a little more recognition that all people need to be represented in publishing, there is still a gap in the market for such titles. This beautiful little book aims to plug one gap. Minerva Reads A book to put into primary classrooms, secondary school libraries, to buy for families, and to share and discuss wherever and whenever you can - I certainly intend to. Red Reading Hub This one is for shelves everywhere. Read it with all your sons and daughters and share it far and wide. Picture Books Blogger Be bold. Be courageous. Be you. Be true. That's the message of this empowering, informative, and beautifully illustrated book. Brightly
