My Favorite Kids Books about Inspirational Women
Books are a wonderful way to inspire our sons and daughters to learn about inspirational women. That’s why I am very intentional about the books I have at home and I wanted to share these Kids Books about Inspirational Women that we have in our home!
*Note: This post is about the books we have in our home, of course there are MANY more books that highlight amazing women! (You can see another list of books here).
. I also love these books because they show that all people, even those who now we see as super successful, have had adversity in their lives, but have overcome these to be successful people who use their voices to stand up for others.
