Reviews

"This book tells the true stories of six queens whose lives are seldom shared in our history classes. It is interesting to compare the stories of women with strong voices from history just as women today are developing strong voices of their own. The text shares the histories of women who exhibit perseverance and strength in times when women were not readily given such strong roles of leadership. As we learn about these women, we are awed by their ingenuity, strength, and determination. These events are well researched and documented, offering students a path to read more about these historical figures if their interest is piqued. The illustrations add to the historical knowledge as well as enhance the reader's interest." -- School Library Connection
