Book of the week: A is for Abigail: An Almanac of Amazing American Women
March is Women's History Month, so I will be highlighting some books that would be great to share this month. A is for Abigail: An Almanac of Amazing American Women by Lynne Cheney (yes, that Cheney) is my first suggestion. Done in alphabet format, one woman per letter (or sometimes more than one), this is a great choice because you could highlight a different woman (or group of women) every day and read the book for the entire month. The illustrations are whimsical, and while this book highlights some of the standard women that we all know, it also mentions some women that students probably have not heard of, such as the first woman chief of the CherokeeNation and the first woman governor. If you're looking for some new women to highlight, check this book out!
