"She Persisted" is written by Chelsea Clinton and illustrated by Alexandra Boiger. My wife and I bought this book for our oldest daughter when she won a "Student of Character" award at school. I had heard of the book here and there, but I hadn't really dug into it until that night when we sat down to read before bed. I was pleasantly surprised by what I found.
She Persisted Book Review:
This book is one that every young child should have on their book shelf. Yep, not just girls should own this book. It's all about 13 women throughout the history of America that didn't stop when others told her she should. They pushed through the barriers in front of them until they succeeded. These women changed the world for the better, they persevered, they challenged the status quo, they worked hard to make a difference, They Persisted.
Learn about women in history like Harriet Tubman, Helen Keller, Nellie Bly, Maria Tallchief, Claudette Colvin, Clara Lemlich, Sonia Sotomayor, and more.
This book is a great way to teach kids to stand up for what they truly believe in. It teaches a lesson that you will be told "No" in your life, and that just because someone says "No", if you truly believe in what you are doing, it doesn't always me "Never". They need role models in their lives that pushed through those "No's" and kept on their course. Kids need people to look up to that worked even harder to make a change that they truly believed in. The 13 women that this book features are exactly those role models.
I'm the author of the book called The Ball That Did Not Like to Bounce, and I have a passion for books with good messages that help kids to be a better version of themselves. Better kids = better future for everyone. If I can affect even one child and nudge them one notch closer to being a better them, then I have achieved my goal! I do Author Visits and work to share with kids that we are all unique and special.
My question to you:
Is there a role model in your life that you look up to? Why do you look up to them? What is it about them that makes them special to you? Let me know in the comments below!
