Rad Women Worldwide: Artists and Athletes, Pirates and Punks, and Other Revolutionaries Who Shaped History

51hsgbgr0clThis is an Amazing Book, very Empowering and Educational.  When you read this book you are reading about Artists and Athletes, Pirates and Punks, and Other Revolutionaries Who Shaped History and who our kids should be looking up to, these women are REAL Role Models.

It was like a history lesson on steroids, the illustrations are top notch, we loved the creativity put into each RAD Women’s page. This book is very educational our kids went to a Montessori school when they were young and it was cool to see Dr. Maria Montessori in the book.

Being a blogger I loved learning about with Enheduanna who is the world’s oldest known author living more than 4,000 years ago, I had never heard of before.  This book is perfect for teens and up. the text is easily accessible for children, although it was published for adults.
