    I could also include this book under biography. This was a collection of short stories about amazing women. Each one had great talent, ambition, and ability that made them outstanding in their respective fields of art, science, medicine, music, dance, architecture, etc. I was so impres...

    Out of 54 featured visionaries, I only remember hearing about eight. I enjoyed learning about the gifts of so many women I'd never heard of. Most of the features are one page in length, but there's a lot packed into each. ...

    This is one of the most delightful books I've ever picked up. Vashti Harrison has managed to create some beautiful illustrations about some of the most extraordinary women. I didn't know about several of the mentioned figures in the book, so I've added a couple of biographies to my mor...

    I recently read Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History by the same author/illustrator. While I thought it was great (and a perfect read for Black History Month), the limited scope of African-American women left me wanting a bit more. So when I saw that Harrison had also written ...

    I thought this book was so cute! I really enjoyed reading small samples of the stories each women had to tell. I loved how this focused on women in math, science, dance, and art. I think it is important for young girls to start believing in themselves and reach for their biggest dreams...

    Feb 20, 2019
    Ambitious collection with a global view of women who have done great things from a Chilean ethnomusicologist (Violeta Parra) to an Aboriginal Australian Ceramist (Thancoupie Gloria Fletcher). Most will be new to young readers, which is the point, but there are a few familiar names here...

    Excellent bite-size information about visionary women throughout history. Updating these areas of the library is a pleasure since books in 2019 are much better about being conscientiously inclusive of women of all backgrounds. I love how Harrison particularly dismisses the concept o...

    Genuinely loved this and actually liked it even better than I liked Little Leaders from Vashti Harrison (which I did also really like). The art is as fantastic and adorable as I expect from Harrison, but I was really impressed with the variety of women she chose to represent here. ...

    I read this to my 7 year old daughter. Very interesting. We both enjoyed it a lot. We just read 1-2 every night, which was nice because we could really think about each dreamer and discuss. Everything was explained in a way that she could understand, but still deep enough to keep me in...

    89 pages. This is a well-written book but I think it really would appeal to middle school readers more than elementary kids. It would be great for reports or inspirational reading. Illustrations are very nice, too. ...

    This is such a wonderful little book to introduce readers to some fascinating women of the world that you may or may not be aware of it. I particularly love the extra reading section that comes at the end and defiantly makes me want to find out more. It is also makes you think about so...
