Literature Reuirement Nonfiction Book #2 Biographical collective biographyThe only reason I am not giving this book 5 out of 5 stars is simply because of who the book covers and how the information is presented The idea of this book is to give the names and importance of 20 women who “raised hell” during American history I get that What I don’t particularly like is how some of the women are portrayed or how some of the information is presented There are things that are glossed over for the sake of this being a children’s book and I understand the rationale However there are many things that shouldn’t be glossed over when it comes to important women in history At some point some of the information brought up about these women need not be included It’s better to just talk about important points than to bring some up but not disclose the true realityOther than that this book is great There are historical timelines about different movements and at the end there are sites to visit to learn about these women There are great pictures to go along with the text for each woman and they help to give context and a visual clue as to what was going on in the lives of each woman Without the illustrations and the timelines this book would be WAY too much text for children to realistically make their way through I’m glad that there are books that speak to the accomplishments of women although another drawback of this book is that some of the women mentioned were unsuccessful in some of their endeavors and the book bluntly notes thatI would recommend this book for late elementary and middle school aged students Students below those ages would likely not understand some of the language or the significance of some of the women and their endeavors
