What Was Stonewall?What Was Stonewall? by Nico Medina
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

With the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, there are going to be lots of books commemorating the event. And, I’m glad it’s getting covered in this popular series. While this is a good introduction, it is a bit over the place and tackles subjects that don’t really do justice in just a page or two.

Away with Words: The Daring Story of Isabella BirdAway with Words: The Daring Story of Isabella Bird by Lori Mortensen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Curiosity was the cure for Isabella Bird who ended up traveling the world in spite of the limited and limiting life her time had for women.

She Spoke: 14 Women Who Raised Their Voices and Changed the WorldShe Spoke: 14 Women Who Raised Their Voices and Changed the World by Kathy MacMillan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love this picture book that features 14 female changemakers and includes soundbites for each one. Includes a short biography and details about the words they spoke. My favorite part is probably the section where they ask the readers questions relating to that person and their life.

    I have Away With Words but haven’t read it yet. The other two are new to me. Thanks for always adding some new books to my list, Earl.
