Little Feminist Board Book SetLittle Feminist Board Book Set by Lydia Ortiz
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Cute simplified intros to some powerful females. Each themed board book is about 4 feminists with one page of their illustrated image and then paired with a few words on the opposite side. I would personally seek out other board books of these kinds rather than this one but again it’s a cute empowering message.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This picture book may get a false impression of being boring and a textbooksy read which is unfortunate since it’s fascinating. It’s always interesting to discover the origin story of things- and sometimes we may be under the misconception that certain things always existed because they’re so common nowadays. And who knew there would be so much drama behind graphs- and that someone with a surname of “Playfair” would actually be a scoundrel!

My blogging is fueled by YOU taking the time to read my words. It is also fueled by caffeine. If you’re so inclined, my email is EARLDIZON [at] GMAIL.COM if you want to send a Starbucks gift card my way. Thanks!

    Thanks for you review of Lines, Bars and Circles: How William Playfair Invented Graphs. I actually checked it out, but did not get a chance to read it. I had so many books to review at the time. I put this book back on my list for a future visit. Thanks for the recommendation.

    I’m rather surprised that people would want a board book for the little ones about people, but maybe? I have the “lines” book on my list, hope to read it sometime! It does sound interesting. Thanks, Earl!
