Fantastically Great Women Who Saved the Planet

Fantastically Great Women Who Saved the Planet

Kate Pankhurst
Bloomsbury Children's Books
ISBN: 9781408899298

I have been a huge fan of the Kate Pankhurst Great Women series and already have the first few in my collection. The new addition, Great Women who Saved the Planet, is no exception. I love everything about these books from the illustrations and the layout to the way they are written. Kate Pankhurst has chosen a brilliant selection of women who have helped change and pave the way to protecting our planet and everything inside it. I love the mix of different women from all over the world - supporting, starting and leading different causes and studies.

Each page is full of information, quotes and inspiration, following the journey of each woman and her work. The illustrations bring the page to life and help children follow the 'path' of information around the page. This is not only for children; I, too, learned about great women and their work on the planet!

I think these books are brilliant addition to bookshelves, especially for girls to help spark some inspiration. I have used these within PSHE lessons and in the classroom and the children love the series of books I can't wait to add this one to the collection.
