I think this one could have been more than what it is.

Considering this book was written for an Easy reading level, the amount of content is appropriate despite the criticism expressed by others. I don't know what one of the reviewers has against JKR and Malala, but they seemed like appropriate choices. Malala, more than JKR. I do agree that the addition of dates would've been nice though. This would however, still be a nice intro on the topic of influential women.

I thought the book is great for young girls. I gave it 3 stars, instead of 3.5 due to including “famous” JK Rowling and Malala (“I Am Malala”).

Rated this one star for a great idea, poorly executed. How is it possible that no one - from the author through illustrator, proofreader, and publishers - thought including dates of these accomplishments relevant?
