Inspiration of 100 great women

January 9, 2010 at 10:47 am

Remember the Ladies: 100 Great American Women by Cheryl Harness; published by HarperCollins Publishers; 2001.

Lady Liberty oversees the title page, and combined with the red end pages, we know this is a book about American women.  The biographies of 100 American women date from pre-national history (like Pocahontas) to today (like Ruth J. Simmons).  Illustrations of each woman correspond to amazing fact about her.  The background colors of each set of facing pages range from purple (mountain’s majesty) to amber (waves of grain).  I felt like bursting out in a chorus of “America, the Beautiful” when I read this book!

I imagine doing a program with the National First Ladies’ Museum and using this book to tie in with that program.  It would also be appropriate to add to a display for Presidents’ Day (which I think should be renamed American Heroes Day) or the Fourth of July.
