    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. I 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.

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.

    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.
