Kids and adults will likely find something of interest in this light introduction to some amazing women who have changed the world as we know it. The collection in Women Who Changed the World is diverse, recognizing women from different countries, of different ethnic backgrounds, with varying areas of expertise, and from a range of time periods. The biographies are short enough to remain interesting, but deep enough to provide a reasonable overview in most cases. There are perhaps a few moments that are too light for the intended age group. In the scene where Rosa Parks is arrested on the bus, for example, a tiny and cute police dog runs over and urinates on a bus wheel. There are also some words and concepts that kids may not understand, such as the Taliban. Some kids may be frustrated by the multiple-choice questions, which refer to material that hasn't yet been discussed. Despite these challenges, this serves as a solid introduction to some important, impressive people.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
