Founding Mothers is a welcome corrective to history, putting both a human and female face on the American Revolution. The prose is accessible, often conversational. The illustration evokes the time, using watercolor, sepia, and antique pens and inkwells. Teachers will love the book for the classroom. Parents may be glad to have a book of nonfiction that celebrates the role of girls and women in the early history of America.

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.
