" I enjoyed this, but was sad to see that there was no mention of women like Betsy Ross, Deborah Sampson, and so on. " said.

" Honestly, this was boring and didactic and annoying. I appreciate the attempt to include women of color, but the whole freaking thing falls flat. The anecdotes are largely pointless and sometimes offensive, and the illustrations and layout are confusing. " said.

" Brief sketches of a range of women, information is good and the illustrations add context " said.

" This is a great book to read to elementary students, very interesting. " said.

" Love how this book focuses on women, in a history that is mainly geared toward men. Little girls need this, and I think more women would be historians if history lightened the load on the men's point of view in history. Not all history is about war, or battles, it is about the personal/social/political conflict that effects everyone. " said.

" Delightful. We all need more books like this one. I would have loved to read this as a young girl, but I am just as glad to read it now. The true stories told here are inspirational. And the illustrations are lovely. Kudos to Roberts and Goode for introducing the rest of us to these strong, good, and courageous women. " said.

" This is a very interesting book that gives you a brief look at some of the women who made a difference in the early years of the United States. The best part for me, is that there were only a few extremely well known names within the book. Obviously, if you studied history you would know more of the names, but as a possible introduction to influential historical women this is a great book for kids. " said.

"Ladies of Liberty is a wonderfully illustrated nonfiction book about influential women of the early days of the creation of the country. Each vignette highlights a woman that may not be familiar to young readers (although Sacagawea is also featured) and shares a few stories about why they are important to the history of the United States. However, many of the stories are framed around each woman’s better-known spouse and what they did to help their husbands achieve their goals. While the diversity of the people in this book is recognized and appreciated, this effort to highlight their individual historical contributions falls flat. This title is recommended for libraries that already have a well-used collection of the author’s other works." said.
