    The book itself is beautifully designed in all it s wonders Harrison s style and use of colour makes this so visually pleasing and on top of that it s educational These are the types of books that children should be reading uplifting and inspirational Moreover considering the lack of ethnic minorities in children s books as a whole that I m aware of in the UK I see this as a very much needed welcome edition as one that doesn t focus on struggle persay, but so on achievement I very much look forward to her next book.

    We read a story to our daughter every night before she goes to bed She loves the little stories and already have her favourites I find this educational even for myself as an adult because I discover things that I then go on to research and learn about A fantastic idea for a book, please do like this

    Brought for my children I initially saw this at the London Musesm but was largely overpriced as you could imagine I immediately went onto and saw this at a great price My daughters instantly fell I love with this book It s nice to see women who they can relate to who have done and are doing great things.

    This is a great book with short biographies that inspire little children Similar to Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls.

    Considering there is a distinct lack of black history being taught in our schools, books like this are vital Well written and easy to read I found the content lead to my kids asking questions, which is exactly what we want.
