My Thoughts
This book released on July 25, 2018.

What I liked about this book was how the information is presented. It’s not overwhelming but in those smaller information chunks like in books such as The History of ColoursAlso the history and accomplishment range of men and women are discussed in this book is extremeley varied. Yes, there are a few people in there that you always see pop up in books but there are many lesser known people included as well. Not only that but this books includes various cultures achieving very different things which really helps to break down stereotypes.

This is a diverse book which suits any classroom. The topics included are so varied that it would work well as book that you read 1 page/person a day and perhaps have the students reflect on the person, what they did, as well how it may/may not be relevant to them – this allows for many Text-To-Self and Text-to-World connections to be made.

Overall a great allrounder book for the classroom or at home.

Many thanks to Net Galley and Quatro Publishing for the free copy.
