Little Leaders – Bold Women In Black History by Vashti Harrison (Puffin)

It’s refreshing to see this ‘Little Leaders‘ book breaking boundaries and celebrating 40 trailblazing black women from both our past and present.

Mini biographies provide an overview of the great things these 40 sensational black women achieved in their lifetimes.

From American astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison to the infamous Oprah and the British boxer, Nicola Adams, there is a wonderfully diverse group of epic black women who have made history and shaped the world we live in today.

Many of them are famous but some are lesser-known and need to be acknowledged for their contribution to society.

Vashti Harrison has created a very special debut book, with interchangeable characters, which girls everywhere can relate to.

From ready-made heroes, aspirational role models and everyday women who achieved the most extraordinary things, this book is bound to inspire one of our next leaders… big or little.

This most prestigious list of inspirational black women is brought to life by Harrison‘s simply striking illustrations accompanied by an enthralling and captivating text.

There’s something hugely inspirational in each of the women’s stories and undoubtedly some aspect of one of these stories will strike a chord with one of our future leaders.

This is one for shelves everywhere. Read it with all your sons and daughters and share it far and wide. We want to see more picture books like this.

Little Leaders. They’re brave. They’re bold. They changed the world.
