Rebels

“...The format is easy to use and captures the most pertinent aspects of each person's contributions...The profile subjects include the famous and not-so-famous. An excellent source for information and inspiration. Recommended.” —Book Report, 11/99 "These well-organized books introduce historical and contemporary women of varied races and nationalities...Many of these figures have not previously been covered in biographical materials for children...suitable for browsing and for giving children some idea of the enormous variety of accomplishments of women around the world." —School Library Journal, 08/99
