Twelve Australian women who have shaped history and all from different eras and different walks of life.
In the last two years there has been an increase in books about women who have made a difference in the world but this book is a little different.
Focussing on only 12 women and covering each state of Australia, the short stories written about each woman give us some information about where and how they grew up and what inspired them to start on the pathway that made them famous.
Each story is short and engaging so younger readers will enjoy reading these stories and looking and the vibrant illustrations that match what the woman looked like and what she did.
The book has also included a more information section at the back of the book to help young readers or their parents and teachers to use websites that are trusted to give them reliable information.
We especially loved the final page in this book which inspired many of my young readers
So ask yourself:
What is my story going to be?
What will I do?
How will I change my world?
