Pocket Books Embrace Women’s History Month | Book Reviews

We are continuing our theme of celebrating Women’s History Month with three delightful pocket bio books and we are excited to share a bit about each one.

Anne Frank

Born into a Jewish family in Frankfurt, Germany, in 1929, Anne Frank was only thirteen years old when her family went into hiding to escape persecution during the Holocaust. Anne kept a diary detailing their years spent living in a concealed room behind a bookcase prior to their arrest – a diary so widely published following her death that it is one of the period’s most influential books.

Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo remains one of the most celebrated painters of her time for her exploration of themes of feminism, gender, class, and race in her artwork and frequent self-portraits. From her childhood struggle with polio, to the traffic accident that left her with chronic pain, to her artistic exploration of herself and her identity, follow this extraordinary woman’s life and accomplishments.

Marie Curie

Marie Curie, the first woman ever to win a Nobel Prize and only person to win it in two different scientific fields, was a physicist and chemist. As she conducted pioneering research, Marie Curie coined the term “radioactivity,” developed some of the first techniques for isolating radioactive isotopes. She also discovered two elements: polonium and radium, and developed mobile X-ray units for use in field hospitals during World War I. In 1934, at the age of sixty-six, she dies of complications from long-term exposure to radiation.

Pocket Bio books are such a great idea to provide children with a brief history lesson in a small size format. They are very informative and all the stories of Anne Frank, Frida Kahlo, and Marie Curie were inspiring all in their own ways.

Pocket size books filled with empowering women of history is what you can expect from the above books. We loved how a timeline is provided in each story and book as it gives us the reader a better idea of the time that these amazing women where from. The illustrations are also very well done in each book. Therefore, for this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give the seriesĀ 5 stars out of 5!

We would recommend these books for children ages 6 and up.

Until next time…Happy Parenting!
