Women’s History Month Blog-a-Thon

Is this all you learned about women’s history when you were a kid?

As catchy a tune as it is, there are so many more stories to be told about women and their contributions. And throughout this month the children’s literature blogosphere is going to tell a few!

Each day in March a kid lit blogger will be posting about women’s history: recommending books, sharing stories, and educating a new generation about sisters who fought the good fight.

Click on over to Kid Lit Celebrates Women’s History Month for the full schedule of participating bloggers.

And check out these Chronicle books that tell the stories of remarkable women.
