Review by Booklist Review

When young readers think of the world's most formative historical leaders, scientists, and athletes, they probably do not picture women like Wilma Rudolph, Sally Ride, and Florence Nightingale. In seven thematic chapters, some of the most influential women from both past and present are chronicled here in brief biographical sketches. Per DK's revised, tiered levels, this reader is suitable for students who are confident reading independently, and it provides plenty of contextual support for synthesizing nonfiction text, such as colorful graphics, questions that check for understanding, time lines, and sidebars. The subjects of the book represent a great diversity in time, place, and area of influence, but all of them demonstrate that one person, regardless of gender or social standing, can make a tremendous positive impact on the world around them.--Anderson, Erin Copyright 2017 Booklist
