  1. What a great giveaway. Amelia Earhart because I always enjoyed learning about her and sharing her story with my children.

  2. Real Lives of Fearless Women will be my favorite to share. It takes normal everyday women like Rosa Parks to do great things because of their loving and protective natures’.

  3. Rachel Carson’s message is even more imperative than when she first began her writings. I would love all the books for my classroom.

  4. Susan B. Anthony and all of the women of the Women’s Rights movement are my favorites. Without these brave women we may not have the rights that we do today.

  5. Corrie Ten Boom and Anne Frank. The stories of the brave people who suffered in the Holocaust and those who tried to help inspire me.

  6. There are so many women that have done great things in history. I have always admired Princess Diana for all that she did in her short life. I also admire Amelia Earhart for overcoming many obstacles as she being a woman.

  7. I love talking about Clara Barton and the Red Cross. She is part of our local history making it even more relatable for my students. These books would be fantastic additions to my classroom library.

  8. I would love to win the books. I took a Women’s History Class in College for my major in Social Science and really enjoyed that class. I learned about many women that never made into to the history books read in school.
