With the flop of the last set of books, I got some new ones from the library. My daughter is exposed to enough Disney inspired role models through her peers and teachers, I decided to get a few “true” stories about women (and one man) that could serve as a balance to the princesses and queens who passively let the princes and kings take care of them. We have only started one of these books, so further reviews will follow when they have been read.
Eleanor: Quiet no more is the store of Eleanor Roosevelt, When Marian Sang is about Marian Anderson, and Harvesting Hope is the story of Cesar Chavez. I hope to regularly insert biographies into the reading selections to build a repertoire of people whose stories are of courage, action, and love.
