Summary

Summary

An Amazon Best Book of the Month Selection in Children's Nonfiction

From the New York Times bestselling author of Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History comes the highly anticipated follow-up, detailing the lives of women creators around the world.

Featuring the true stories of forty women creators, ranging from writers to inventors, artists to scientists, Little Leaders: Visionary Women around the World inspires as it educates. Readers will meet trailblazing women like Mary Blair, an American modernist painter who had a major influence on how color was used in early animated films, actor and inventor Hedy Lamar, environmental activist Wangari Maathai, architect Zaha Hadid, filmmaker Maya Deren, and physicist Chien-Shiung Wu. Some names are known, some are not, but all of the women had a lasting effect on the fields they worked in.

The charming, information-filled book reveals the leaders as both accessible and aspirational so the listeners know that they, too, can grow up to do something amazing.
