Amelia to Zora by Cynthia Chin-Lee

Looking for something educational to read the little bundle of joy in your life? Amelia to Zora: Twenty-Six Women Who Changed the World by Cynthia Chin-Lee is the perfect pick.

Chin-Lee discusses 26 famous women who have influenced society for the better. In the fashion of an A through Z children's book she writes short biographies for many popular figures in women's history as well as some people who readers may not know. Each biography is a paragraph long and accompanied by an interesting portrait by Megan Halsey and Sean Addy. In addition to Helen Keller and Eleanor Roosevelt, Chin-Lee writes about Nawal El Sadaawi, women's rights activist, and Yoshiko Uchida, writer, and many more.

Pick up this book to teach your little one something new and introduce yourself to a few new historical figures as well.
