They're Bold, Beautiful -- They're Picture Books about Amazing Women! #amreading

So I've been reading elementary and middle grade nonfiction for the Cybils, and oh what joy! So many wonderful titles! And I'm only about half-way through the lists. :) Today I'd like to share 5 books that introduce readers to bold women doing amazing work in whatever their field may be: fashion, music, education, sports and filmmaking... these women were determined and dared to be different. Prepare to be inspired!

Bloom: A Story of Fashion Designer Elsa Shiaparelli

Libba: The Magnificent Musical Life of Elizabeth Cotten

Midnight Teacher: Lilly Ann Granderson and Her Secret School

Girl Running: Bobbi Gibb and the Boston Marathon

Lights! Camera! Alice! The Thrilling True Adventures of the First Woman Filmmaker

  1. I loved Bloom & Girl Running, still need to read the other two. It's lots of fun to see you reading all the books for Cybils. I have a few favorites, look forward to seeing what your committee chooses!
