Women’s History Month is a great time to read a biography

March is Women’s History Month—the perfect time for your child to read a biography of a famous woman. To find a biography your child will enjoy, talk about interests. If your child likes:

· Sports, consider reading about Wilma Rudolph, a three-time Olympic gold medal winner.

· Politics, read about Victoria Woodhull, who in 1870 became the first woman to run for president. Or, look for a book about Sandra Day O’Connor, the first woman appointed to the United States Supreme Court.

· Fashion, find a biography about Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who was considered a cultural and fashion icon in the 1960s.

· Science, read about Marie Curie, the only person to win a Nobel Prize in two different sciences—chemistry and physics.

· Helping others, learn more about Mother Teresa, who dedicated her life to serving the poor and disadvantaged.

· Space, read about Sally Ride who was the first American woman in space. Upon her return, she dedicated her life to helping girls excel in STEM fields.

Read the book together or let your child read it independently, but don’t stop there. Encourage your child to do some additional research on the person online.
