From Jeanne Barét, botanist and first woman to circumnavigate the globe, to Gertrude Bell, historian who traversed the Arabian desert, these women pioneers and role models make for perfect children’s book material. Their brief biographies and portraits (by Lisa Graves) introduce the often-forgotten history of female explorers and their discoveries. A great teaching tool, this guide will open young readers’ eyes to the wonders of the world and the people who inhabit it. Ages six to ten.
