"Women Making America is essential, excellent, thoughtful and thorough.... Lots of people send me things they've written, but I've seldom received anything as intelligently conceived.... I enjoyed reading every word."~Valerie Tripp, author of numerous American Girl novels and Children's Choice Award winner
"The authors have done a remarkable job! I'm very excited about Women Making America. It is an indispensable resource-engaging, accessible, and thorough. It's a must read for all ages!"~Penny Colman, award-winning author of 18 books, including Rosie the Riveter: Women Working on the Homefront in World War II
"This book is brilliant. I know of nothing else like it. I was fully drawn in by the unique way the authors use personal historic accounts. Women Making America is perfectly conceived to help readers understand how they themselves are the makers of history. Read it today."~Molly Murphy MacGregor, President and Co-Founder of the National Women's History Project
