Four amazing books about Women’s History to read to your children


March is Women’s History Month. There are many amazing children’s books available about fantastic females who have contributed to history in some way. As a mother of little girls, it’s important to me to make sure they know about women who have made significant accomplishments throughout history. It’s important to empower our girls and teach them that there are no limits to what they can accomplish. Please comment below if you have any other great books you’d like to share!

Women can be anything and do anything! We love this book, because it features female scientists, female astronauts, and even politicians. Plus. it’s written for a younger audience, so it’s appropriate for my five year old.

This is a slightly “older” version of the “Dream Big, Little One” book. From Marian Anderson to Katherine Johnson, this book talks about extraordinary women around the world. My oldest child has learned so much about women she’d never even heard of (and so have I).

I have wanted to read I am Malala with my daughter so bad, but at age 10, I wasn’t sure she was quite ready for the young reader’s edition. This book is for a slightly younger crowd and is much more age appropriate for her.

How about a women’s history coloring book? I have recently ordered this and can’t wait to share it with my girls.

What are your favorite books about women’s history to read with your children?
