Over the weekend, Charlotte’s Best Nanny Agency had the privilege to attend Chelsea Clinton’s book signing at Barnes and Nobles for her new children’s book entitled “She Persisted Around the World”. What a pleasure it was to meet Chelsea Clinton and have her sign a few copies of “She Persisted Around the World”.
She “Persisted Around the World” is the companion book to Chelsea’s first book She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World, which features 13 women in America who have persisted and accomplished there biggest dreams and goals. The second book focuses on 13 women who have persisted around the world to accomplish bug dreams and goals. To complement the stories in this book, each page features the beautiful and vibrant illustrations of Alexandra Boiger.
This book is perfect for older girls (around 10 years old plus) who are old enough to understand and learn about the back stories of some of the world’s most influential women. This book is a great book for any child that enjoys reading biographies on individuals. It is also an encouraging and inspiring book for any young girl or boy to read.
The highlight of this book for me was reading over each women’s individual stories, and reading about each women’s unique obstacles they had to preserver over to achieve their goals. I even learned some new things and was introduced to some wonderful women I was not aware of who have made a difference in this world. This book teaches perseverance and that little girls or boys can grow up and do anything they want to do, and be anyone they want to be.
She Persisted Around the World Features the following amazing women: Marie Curie, Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, Viola Desmond, Sissi Lima do Amor, Leymah Gbowee, Caroline Herschel, Wangari Maathai, Aisha Rateb, J.K. Rowling, Kate Sheppard, Yuan Yuan Tan, Mary Verghese and Malala Yousafzai.
If you have a chance to pick up a copy, I would highly recommend this book for older girls. I do not recommend this book for children under 10 years old, as it deals with some topics younger children would not be able to understand.
In honor of Women’s History Month, Charlotte’s Best Nanny Agency is giving away one signed copy of “She Persisted Around the World”. To enter to win follow the directions in the Rafflecopter below. Winner will be announced on Friday, March 30th, 2018.
