Also, the Girl Who Ran by Kristina Yee! Makes me tear up every time my daughter and I read it together.
I’ll have to check it out! This post only covers books published in 2019, but I know there are so many other great ones out there.
WOW! I love how many of these women I’ve never even heard of – it’s so great to see unsung heroes finally getting their time to shine.
Right!? It’s also kinda sad that I was never taught about these women growing up. Hopefully the plethora of new books will change that for the future.
These look incredible! Thank you for making this list!
You are so welcome! I want them all for my personal collection too 🙂
What a great list! I want them all!!! Will be sharing many of these with my students. Thank you!
I feel the same way! Can’t wait to get my hands on every title.
