The United States of America may have been founded by a bunch of men, but why should the guys get all the credit? American history is filled with stories about amazing women who took stands and rewrote their own destinies. Now these ladies are rewriting the alphabet, from Angela Davis to Zora Neale Hurston. Rad American Women A-Z celebrates 26 real American women, including punk rocker Patti Smith, the abolitionist Grimke Sisters, athlete Billie Jean King, activist Temple Grandin, and X (the unnamed women who have influenced and who will influence our American legacy). Each featured woman gets a full page detailing their stories and what makes them so important, and awesomely bright portraits accompany each. This book is perfect for schoolwork or for pleasure and is geared towards middle and older readers who are just starting to learn about history and activism. For those who want to learn more, the author has included a list of resources. Additionally, a Common Core curriculum has already been developed to accompany the book in the classroom. Good for reluctant readers. 64 pages, ISBN:872866831, Ages 8-10 11-13, Recommended by Molly Crumbley, librarian, MD, USA.
