Celebrate Women's History Month with These Books

One of my favorite months of observance is Women’s History Month.

As a boy mom and the only female in the house (even the dog is a boy) it’s the one time of year I feel that have history on my side. And while I indulge in articles, podcasts, and all things woman related throughout the entire year, March is an opportunity to intentionally teach my children about incredible women in history.

Whether your child is a newborn or in high school, check out these awesome books about trail-blazing women.
