5 Great Titles for Women’s History Month

It’s hard to believe we’re already in March! Warm weather may still be a few weeks away (although I’m ready any time now…) but there’s already plenty to celebrate this month—including, of course, Women’s History. Here are five of my favorite titles to give some color to your March reading list:

Do check it out! And if you have other favorite books or resources for the month (and the rest of the year, of course), share them in the comments!

  1. Another book for women…”Registered Nurse to Rear Admiral…A First for Women”…a biography…fyi.

  2. Thanks for highlighting these books. I was excited to see the book about Zora Hurston but even more excited to see the title about Augusta Savage because I have never heard about her. Thanks for continually producing books that I can be excited to share with my children.
