My dd’s thoughts
I recently read the book “More Girls Who Rocked the World” by, Michelle Roehm. I highly recommend this book for multiple reasons.
One big factor of this book that I enjoyed is that it includes women who are not just big inspirations like the first woman sort of thing but also people in other fields such as popular YouTubers, singers, and actresses. Even though industries like this have many women in them, I think it is cool to learn all that they can teach us; and learn about their lives. I learned that so many of them dealt with a lot more than we think.
One more reason why I enjoyed this book is because it talks about some lesser known women such as Jazz Jennings and Mary Lou Williams.
Finally, one interesting factor about this book is that at the end of each woman that they talk about (45 in total), there is a short paragraph with comments from girls like me (and women) talking about their goals and dreams. This inspired me a lot.
While I did not read this book myself, my daughter’s review (in her own words above) hopefully lets you know that this is a book to add for your school and home libraries – a wonderful gift for your tween and younger teens.
So go ahead, find inspiration in the pages of books!
