    Chock-filled with information- a bit too much on each page- best for older kids. Wish Greta Thunberg made the cut....

    As with any book that looks at the best of anything, this book is totally subjective, based on who author / illustrator, Marcia Williams thought should be included. Some I thought were great, while others for others included, I thought, same ol' same ol'. Women are arranged chronologically, beginning with Cleopatra VII and going through Malala Yousafzai. Each entry shows the name of the person, what they are known for, birth and death (where applicable) dates, and a quote from each.

Each entry shows the name of the person, what they are known for, birth and death (where applicable) dates, and a quote from each. I did not like the sort of graphic novel / cartoon strip story format. I thought it made the pages too busy and even though the story told what made the person great, I found the busyness (sp?) to be a distraction. At the end of the book are 2-page spreads for Leaders and World Changers, Athletes, and Creatives, & Scientists, Pioneers, and Adventurers. I felt like this was a way to showcase several women under one heading, but that they weren't "good enough?" to include in the main portion of the book. I did not enjoy this book as much as I thought I would. However, some highlights included: Mary Wollstonecraft, Eleanor Roosevelt, Frida Kahlo, Wangari Maathai, Mae C. Jemison, and Yousafzai.

    This is a picture book of various notable women in history. There is text describing the person and what they are notable for, along with a brief history of their lives. There are also dialogue boxes in the panels. Additionally, there are little blurbs in the margins. There is SO much going on in this book that it was hard to know what to read first. I think there runs a serious issue of children not getting into the book, or if being read to, not being interested enough to last more than one bio This is a picture book of various notable women in history.

    This book reminds me of the Nathan Hale books. The format of the book is bigger, but the illustrations are wonderful. Accessible and fun to review. I love the chronological details. Let’s be realistic though, you can’t include everyone and just when you think that... like, wow, why isn’t Greta included? Then there’s the author’s note which explains why. It’s an excellent kick off for a discussion about women in history, past, present and future. Great book for middle schools.

    Packed with information, Hooray for Women! is a celebration of some of the contributions women have made to the world. This is a great place for students to make a start studying each of these notable women. It is a valuable resource for classrooms and for home libraries.
