The Awesome Women series: Activists: Courage box set features three board books to inspire young readers to be anything they want to be. Each story pays tribute to an awesome female activist by recounting her struggles and challenges, and detailing her success.
Each female activist is brought to life through interesting nuggets of information, such as the fact that Amal Clooney had to flee her country when she was just a toddler, that Greta Thunberg sees her Asperger’s Syndrome as her superpower, and that Michelle Obama was Barack Obama’s mentor at a law firm before he became the 44th President of the United States.
Readers will also have fun searching for the authors and illustrator’s daughters Andrea and Beth hidden in the illustrations!
Priscilla and Shawn Tan are proud parents of a three-year-old girl nicknamed Monmon. When they failed to find books that would inspire Monmon to be anything she wanted to be, they decided to write it themselves and the Awesome Women series was born.
Kristen Kiong is a Singapore-based illustrator and calligrapher with a heart for meaningful projects. She is also the illustrator of another children’s picture book, I’ll Love You Anyway.
