Rad Women Worldwide! Review

I think, for being a girl, the biggest motivation and inspiration comes from reading about other women who changed the world and make a major impact in how we live and how things are done today. It seems we often hear about the men who have made history, but what about us girls?!? 

I recently read the book, Rad Women Worldwide, by Kate Schatz, illustrated by Miriam Klein Stahl, and was inspired by all the stories about women in sports, medicine, science, along with the pirates, punks and revolutionaries. 

There are some remarkable women out there who have done equally amazing things and this book is full of them.

From the look and design of the book, to the stories inside, it is a very visually attractive with a modern focus on women. 

I really love the bright colors and fun presentation of this book. It is like a fun trip in history. Each story is well researched and engaging and inspiring. The content of it covers from 430 B.C. to the year 2016 in 31 countries across the world. (See map, courtesy of Penguin Random House Marketing Library)

Many of the stories really touched me, especially the ones about women who were laughed and scoffed at for their dreams and ideas. One in particular was Kalpana Chawla, From her beginning and through growing up, she was often discouraged from her dream, especially the one about becoming an astronaut. Teachers even tried to urge her to change her career focus. But her with her perseverance, she got her Ph.D and became a researcher for NASA. In 1997, she was chosen by NASA, out of 2,000 candidates and got to travel to space!

It also includes many other women such as Hatshepsut, the awesome female king who ruled Egypt in successful peace for about 2 decades, and Poly Styrene, who was a teen punk princess and lead singer of the band, X-Ray Spex. Liv Arnesen and Ann Bancroft were explores of the polar region and 2 of the first women to ever cross Antarctica! It also brings up Malala Yousafzi which was the youngest person ever to win a Nobel Peace Prize and she was a girl! 

Plus you can continue your own research with the extra 250 names in the book. This would be great for school, home-school, as part of your history or social studies requirements or for fun. The pictures are illustrated images that reflect the rad women and their accomplishments and/or talents. It is definitely a good read but also entertaining to look at.

You can find this book at any major retailer, including AMAZON HERE. I highly suggest this book as a gift for any girl, young or old, who needs inspiration, motivation or just as a reminder that we are Rad because we are Women! 

I did receive a free copy of this book from Blogging For Books, but the opinions in this post are my own.

With All Due Respect Review

With All Due Respect is a faith based guide book for parents who face challenges with their tween and teen children. 

The authors have prepared a week written handbook to help parents understand what a healthy relationship between parent and child is, teach you practices and lessons to enforce boundaries and rules, increase healthy and loving communication, handle rebelliousness and more. 

Each day, this book shares a relatable story that brings up typical challenges and issues we as parents go through with our children. There are also many thought provoking questions and a prayer to help you to ask for guidance through it. This book, With All Due Respect is for any and parents who want to have a deeper and healthier relationship with their child and incorporate their faith into their lives. 

I found this book to be very helpful and informative. We always say, as a child, "parents just don't understand." This will help you to understand and guide your child. And in a world…
