" Bought this for my friend's baby and I thought it was super cute I just wish Coco Chanel wasn't in it. That's the only reason I'm taking off a star. " said.

" Perfect introduction to feminist #sheroes from modern times. #MightyGirls " said.

" This is an adorable and educational book. My daughter and I loved reading it together and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I plan on looking for more of Joan Holub's books for my kids. " said.

" Very inspirational children's book about some of the wonderful contributions that extraordinary woman have made. Great book for "kids" of all ages. " said.

" Primers for the preschool and younger set, from explorers and presidents and now to female trailblazers, Joan Holub continues her board book series with a focus on girl power. A great way to introduce young readers to amazing women! " said.

" Board book for the young feminist toddler! Does a great job of being intersectional, inclusive, and showcasing a wide variety of areas of expertise: computer programming, art, government, sports, education, Civil Rights, nursing, fashion, ballet, law, and more. " said.

""This Little Trailblazer" is such a lovely and important book. It is one I can't wait to read to my potential future children.

First, the art is really beautiful. It is colorful and bright. Even if the message is missed, little kids will be interested.

Second, the women used are very diverse. I absolutely loved seeing women of all different kinds of backgrounds presented to girls so equally. No one figure is given more attention than another, which means that every little girl can find someone just like her inside.

Ultimately the book is important because it is encouraging, positive, and asks little girls what they can do to blaze their own trails.

Leslie Knope would be so proud.

"First sentence: Paving the way to a future that's bright. Helping the world with their skills, smarts, and might. Little trailblazers cause great big changes.

Premise/plot: This board book introduces little ones to trailblazing women from all walks of life and corners of the world. Readers meet Ada Lovelace, Florence Nightingale, Coco Chanel, Rosa Parks, Maria Tallchief, Wilma Rudolph, Sonia Sotomayor, Ruby Bridges, Maya Lin, and Malala Yousafzai.
Each woman is introduced in rhyme. The next page contains a few more facts.

Coco Chanel
This little trailblazer
became a millionaire
by designing simpler clothes
for women to wear.

Coco Chanel disliked the tight dresses of the 1900s. She created comfortable styles that women still love today.

Rosa Parks
This little trailblazer
caused a big fuss
by not giving up
her seat on the bus.

Rosa Parks's bravery helped change an unfair rule that African Americans could not sit by Caucasians on the bus.

My thoughts: I definitely enjoyed reading this one. I loved the rhymes. I liked the additional facts. I wasn't absolutely wowed by the illustrations. (In fact, I disliked some of the illustrations. The illustration of Coco Chanel bothered me. Her lipstick is so dark that it looks like a black mustache. She looks like Hercules Poirot. I do not think that was the illustrator's intent at all.) But I loved the premise of this one.
