  1. That looks great!

    Thanks for the shout out, and for your past participation in the project. It’s going to be an educating, inspiring, and entertaining March at KidLit Celebrates Women’s History Month!

  3. Thanks so much, Betsy! We have some fascinating posts coming up again this year. I am continually amazed by all the terrific books out there now on different inspirational women throughout history. When I was growing up we were lucky to find books on Harriet Tubman, Clara Barton, Florence Nightingale, and maybe Betsy Ross and a few first ladies. I can’t even remember being assigned any books by women authors, except a few poems by Emily Dickinson. It’s great to see how much things have changed for today’s kids, and we appreciate your help in getting the word out.
