She Persisted Around the World: 13 Women Who Changed History by Chelsea Clinton, illustrated by Alexandra Boiger
Chelsea Clinton inspired countless little activists with her #1 New York Times bestselling picture book, She Persisted. From Marie Curie to Malala Yousafzai, this companion book highlights 13 more remarkable women from around the world who followed their dreams.
"Clinton again writes in a measured tone that is at once celebratory and defiant. Boiger's watercolor and ink artwork exudes warmth and subtle power, each spread carefully integrating colors and thematic elements germane to the subjects.... Clinton puts opportunity and responsibility in readers' hands: 'So, speak up, rise up, dream big. These women did that and more. They persisted and so should you.'" — Publishers Weekly
