Awesome Women Series

Awesome Women Series: Activists: Determination


The Awesome Women series: Activists: Determination box set features three board books to inspire young readers to be anything they want to be. Each story pays tribute to an awesome female activist by recounting her struggles and challenges, and detailing her success.

Each female activist is brought to life through interesting nuggets of information, such as the fact that Malala Yousafzai fought for girls’ education even when her life was threatened, that Melinda Gates almost worked at another company before joining Microsoft, and that Michelle Yeoh relied on her ballet experience to perform fighting scenes?

Readers will also have fun searching for the authors and illustrator’s daughters Andrea and Beth hidden in the illustrations!

"I have no doubt that the series will inspire young girls 
and boys to tap into their grit and determination 
even when faced with challenging situations in life."
Her Excellency Halimah YacobPresident of Singapore
