給小讀者:40位非裔美籍女孩 勇敢的故事

介紹40位在美國歷史上,各領域堅毅傑出的黑人女孩。她們在不被接受的困境下,以自己的努力、信念,堅持默默發聲:
有主張廢奴的Sojourner Truth、飛行員Bessie Coleman、化學家Alice Ball、政治家Shirley Chisholm、數學家Katherine Johnson、詩人Maya Angelou、製片Julie Dash。她們是讀者的英雄也是讀者的典範。

插圖清新可愛,每位女孩都是雙眼闔閉,嘴角上揚,神情自若,溫柔而堅定,或許就是這樣的特質支持著女孩,一點一滴改變世界。

A NEW YORK TIMES INSTANT BESTSELLER!A USA TODAY BESTSELLER!

This beautifully illustrated book introduces readers of all ages to 40 women who changed the world.
Featuring forty trailblazing black women in American history, Little Leaders educates and inspires as it relates true stories of breaking boundaries and achieving beyond expectations. Illuminating text paired with irresistible illustrations bring to life both iconic and lesser-known female figures of Black history such as abolitionist Sojourner Truth, pilot Bessie Coleman, chemist Alice Ball, politician Shirley Chisholm, mathematician Katherine Johnson, poet Maya Angelou, and filmmaker Julie Dash.

Among these biographies, readers will find heroes, role models, and everyday women who did extraordinary things - bold women whose actions and beliefs contributed to making the world better for generations of girls and women to come. Whether they were putting pen to paper, soaring through the air or speaking up for the rights of others, the women profiled in these pages were all taking a stand against a world that didn't always accept them.

The leaders in this book may be little, but they all did something big and amazing, inspiring generations to come.
