While I hought it was great ( and a perfect read for Black History Month), the limited scope of African-American women left me wanting a bit ore.

So when I saw that Harrison had also written Little Dreamers: Visionary Women Around the World, I was excited to take anothe look.

consequently I alway ha n't quite satisfied.Little Leaders profiles African-American women in all fields.

Women made important contributions to history as well, especially if those contributions were n't lways recognized at the time.Harrison 's lovely illustrations are just the icing on he puddin.
