Pat Scales writes about National Women’s History Month in the recent Random House newsletter. I appreciate her booklist of titles and recognize that it is simply a beginning. I’d love to collect other’s reading suggestions for the elementary level. Any suggestions?
- Women Who Dared: Recommended books from School Library Journal on women’s history.
- Women’s History Month Book Recommendations: Children’s books on women’s history recommended by Kirkus Reviews.
- Wild Rose Reader: Excellent compilation of children’s book lists on women’s history.

Gale Cengage Learning has an excellent page of Free Resources to support biographical research during Women’s History. http://www.gale.cengage.com/free_resources/whm/bio/
