I'd really love a book for DD that is a kind of encylopaedia/showcase of women who have achieved amazing things in science, politics, engineering etc - aimed at a 6yo or thereabouts! People like Rosa Parks, the Pankhursts, Marie Curie, etc, etc ... ideally heavy on the pictures and a bit lighter on the text - just main facts.

Does anyone have a title for me ... please?! grin

Me too! Book looks good but not so keen on the description. ..

Loving the look of this one too (albeit about artists, rather than scientists or engineers)...

Thanks!! The A-Z one looks lovely but a bit American ... like the ingenious one very much, I think the texts\ a bit old for her just now but I think I'm going to buy it anyway and put it away for future years! ! grin
