Awesome Women Series: Leaders: Authenticity
The Awesome Women series: Leaders: Authenticity 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 role model by recounting her struggles and challenges, and detailing her success.
Young readers will also learn interesting nuggets about each leader, such as the fact that Condoleezza Rice was told she would not make it to college because of the colour of her skin, that Jacinda Ardern brought her three-month-old daughter to work with her at the UN assembly hall, and that Margaret Thatcher lost her first two parliamentary elections before becoming the formidable “Iron Lady”.
The Awesome Women series also includes the Awesome Women series: Leaders: Boldness box set, featuring Angela Merkel, Halimah Yacob and Hillary Clinton.
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.
