About this deal

Vashti Harrison’s beloved illustrations of historical figures — scientists, activists, artists, and more — are the perfect gift for today’s young leaders.

Based on her popular Instagram posts from Black History Month 2017 it features 40 biographies of African American women that helped shape history. For me its also really important to showcase boldness and bravery can come in different shapes and sizes. Da das Buch auf Englisch ist, schauen wir mit unserer Kleinen die Bilder an und erzählen immer mal eine Geschichte einer Frau kurz nach oder hören z. Among these biographies, readers will find heroes, role models, and everyday women who did extraordinary things. He's a little young to understand some of the more complex words , but it's certainly one that will be referred back to over the next few years.

The charming, information-filled full-color spreads show the Leaders as both accessible and aspirational so reader knows they, too, can grow up to do something amazing. The book is beautifully illustrated and the mini biographies of the black women is not too wordy so it's quite nice to read. New York Times bestselling author-illustrator Vashti Harrison shines a bold, joyous light on black men through history.

Readers will meet trailblazing women like Mary Blair, an American modernist painter who had a major influence on how color was used in early animated films, actor/inventor Hedy Lamar, environmental activist Wangari Maathai, architect Zaha Hadid, filmmaker Agnes Varda, and physicist Chien-Shiung Wu. And Josephine Baker- world famous cabaret singer and dancer- was also a spy for the French resistance? Some names are known, some are not, but all of the women had a lasting effect on the fields they worked in. This is my debut book, so I'm definitely new to the world of publishing and may not be able to provide all of the answers. It wonderful to remind kids of what potential is in them and to see what others have already achieved.Backgrounds are minimal, rendered mostly in pale shades, which leaves the focus on the women and helps ground them in history. She earned her MFA in film/video from California Institute of the Arts, where she snuck into animation and illustration classes to learn from Disney and DreamWorks legends. Among these biographies, young readers will find heroes, role models and everyday women who did extraordinary things. I wanted to see black girls treated with the same sweetness as classic characters like that inspire me!

It harkens back to classic children's illustrations done by Mary Blair or Mr Happy by Roger Hargreaves. For publicity, events, or interviews please use the form below to be connected with the publicist from my publisher LittleBrown Books for Young Readers.Additionally, since I saw them as children dressing up as famous women, I wanted the page to feel like they're playing pretend. This fascinating picture book presents a selection of true stories about incredible people who have challenged injustice and worked together to make the world a better place. Each woman, depicted in clothing and costumes reflective of her time and vocation, seems to be looking within, mustering the strength necessary to persevere in the face of daunting odds. Debut author/illustrator Vashti Harrison pairs captivating text with stunning illustrations as she tells the stories of both iconic and lesser-known female figures of black history - from nurse Mary Seacole, to politician Diane Abbott, mathematician Katherine Johnson and singer Shirley Bassey.

I love thinking that they're closing their eyes, looking inside themselves, to step into the shoes of these famous people, emulating their story. My daughter is only 18 months old now but I want her to grow up and be inspired by the great women who came before her.Each translation or publication in another country requires a separate agreement from the foreign markets. There are loads of brilliant non-fiction books that can teach your child about the world, as well as being entertaining, funny and gorgeous to look at. Dieses Buch erzählt jeweils auf einer Seite von berühmten schwarzen* Frauen und was sie in ihrem Leben gemacht haben. She earned her BA from the University of Virginia as a double major in Media Studies and Studio Art with concentrations in Film and Cinematography. I hope to do more events soon, but I am based on the East Coast and may only be able to visit the northeast and midatlantic in the coming months.
