First off, the illustrations are freaking adorable. Like, I wish I had prints of each of them to hang up in my apartment.

I've read many similar books, and I sometimes shy away from something so specific (targeting a narrow group of people instead of broader), but this is too outstanding to let pass by. Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History is a collection of 40 one-page biographies of amazing African American...
