Hooray for Women!

Written and Illustrated by Marcia Williams

Hooray for Women! celebrates the accomplishments of women throughout history, some familiar and some I’d never heard of. Each page is devoted to a different woman and her story is told in graphic novel format. Along the border outside of the panels other facts and info are shared, as well as a boy and a girl who give additional commentary and lead you through the book. It’s fun and interesting but it does make the page look really busy. I enjoyed reading about all the different women’s lives and accomplishments, as well as their failures and challenges. It will be a fun read for students, especially those who enjoy graphic novels.
