MEET GREAT WOMEN WHO HAVE CHANGED THE WORLD!
This book is a self-help book written to plant dreams, hope and passion in children who dream of taking up challenges. The stories of women who reached their goals as "the first female in the world" are divided into three sections, as stories, letters and cartoons.
The stories are about the attitude children must have in order to realize their dreams and based on the stories, great figures like Aung San Suu Kyi, Frida Kahlo, Isadora Duncan and Mother Teresa become mentors, kindly explaining what attitudes the characters of the stories should maintain and which to discard. Finally, the cartoons vividly convey the painstaking efforts of these heroes as they strived for their dreams and the process in which they did so.
The beautiful lives of these heroes, who strived to achieve a single dream all throughout their lives, will inspire children, giving them great courage and hope.
