I was very pleased with the quality of the book and detail provided about each of the historical women included in the coloring book which I purchased for my granddaughter. She loves to learn and to color, and this was an ideal gift for her.
Thanks so much for your feedback, Jeff!
We worked on the concept of the colouring books, so that the learning aspect would be positive for children (and adults too!!)
A variety of nationalities, careers and colours are who you will find in this book. The ten featured women are as follows:
Mildred Dresselhaus * Hellen Keller * Dorothy Dandridge * Mae Carol Jemison * Mary Seacole * Hedy Lamarr * Nellie Bly * Ellizabeth Jennings Graham * Vera Laska * Elizabeth Garrett Anderson
The purpose of this book is to ensure we do not forget those that have gone before us. History, which in this instance is women's lives, has a LOT to tell us and much we can learn from it. Each lady's colouring page is accompanied by a brief biography, fun fact and notable quote. You will find a scientist, journalist, actress, astronaut and more in these pages.Whilst definitely written for all ages I would forewarn interested parents that Hedy Lamarr went from being a nude actress to an inventor of an improved traffic stoplight, the former being talked about in her biography.
