March into Women’s History Month

March 9, 2017

March is National Women’s History Month. The theme this year is “Honoring Trailblazing Women in Labor and Business.” No matter what career path women choose, they continue to make a huge difference in our world. Whether women are stay-at-home moms, in the workforce, fighting for women’s rights, or helping others less fortunate, they are a mighty force to reckon with. Women have the creativity, imagination, and ability to do anything they want.

Below are some picture book biographies that exhibit the strength and tenacity of women with a can-do spirit.
