Ladies of Liberty: The Women Who Shaped Our Nation by Cokie Roberts - OPTIONAL

Roberts, Cokie  Ladies of Liberty: The Women Who Shaped Our Nation  Illustrated by Diane Goode  PICTURE BOOK  Harper, 2017.  $17.99  Content: G.  

This book has mini biographies on some of the more influential women in the United States after the American Revolution.  Some of the women were independent and helped with social causes and some influenced through their relationships with powerful men.  Each biography explains how that woman influenced our country for the better.  

This book is content heavy and each biography has 4-5 paragraphs and two pictures.  The facts included are highlights from the women’s lives, but it felt like a list of their contributions and it didn’t have a lot of human interest aspects.  Although it’s a picture book, the content is more advanced and would work better for teens.  

MS – OPTIONAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
