Women's History Month for kids: 2018 edition

book cover for Katherine JohnsonAlthough March is coming to an end, it's not too late to celebrate Women's History Month!  In fact, in just a short period of time, you can read about women from all over the world in some great, new books for youth. 

Just in time for the movie A Wrinkle in Time, there's a new biography of Madeleine L'Engle written by her granddaughters: Becoming Madeleine.  You'll get an up close and personal look at the author through photographs and excerpts from her diaries.  Katherine Johnson finally got some well-deserved and long-overdue recognition through Hidden Figures (the movie and the book) and there have been several recent books published for youth as well.  One I recently enjoyed is in the fun and informative You Should Meet reader seriesKatherine Johnson by Thea Feldman. For anyone who loves art and/or science, The Girl Who Drew Butterflies by Joyce Sidman is the perfect match as it is about a woman who loved, studied and practiced both!  So get reading before the month is over (but feel free to enjoy these books any time of the year)!
