I’ve bought this for my children but, as a teacher too, I intend to get a copy for school as well. It’s beautifully illustrated and really accessible. I’d definitely recommend.
I’ve sent a bunch of books and art print to my new momma friend, and she loved them! Thank you so much!
The childrens books are beautiful, it was hard to choose from a fab selection. Went with Feminism ABC and Black Women in History for my neices birthday. Will be back for more for my own kids! Came beautifully wrapped too and loved all the extra feminist touches! Thank you :)
