Women of Hope: African-Americans Who Made a Difference Reviews

    Short children's book about extraordinary Black women. It's fairly wide-ranging, from astronauts (Mae Jemison) to writers (Alice Walker and Toni Morrison) to activists (Ida B. Wells-Barnett). There were a couple I hadn't heard of (the Delaney sisters, for example), but each picture is accompanied by a short bio and the person's own words. There's also a short bibliography and lists of more "women of hope."

    This book can serve as a great point of reference for students to learn more about African American women's history. This book summarizes the lives of 12 black women of America and their stories. The book honors each women with a one page summary along with an authentic image of each, as well as a quote. This book is great for students in grades 3rd-5th, and provides a great combination of knowledge, empowerment, and admiration for its audience members. There is a mix of women of which some are often talked about from our history and others not so frequently commentated upon. Each woman reached great heights in their own respects and fields, but each equally important. This book is not a narrative, instead, more information based, yet still enjoyable. This biographical book does a great job of bringing light to the great doings of some of the inspriational African American women from our history.

    This book looks at 12 African American women who have made a difference in their world. I think it is good for children to see specific examples of people's lives and what they have overcome and accomplished. Some students may not be very familiar with many women in this book, which I like. This book would be great to use when teaching about change agents, women's rights, or civil rights.

    This is a great book for showing the important role women played in history. I feel that this would be inspirational for young girls of color and others.
