I’ve said it before and I’m very much a person who makes sure that I cover different cultural groups all year and not just in ‘the’ month that is set aside. But I still think it’s important to cover them in that month. March is Women’s History Month and there have been a plethora of new children’s books released so I thought I’d share Here are 10 Engaging Women’s History Month Books for Kids! (Full disclosure: some affiliate links but it won’t change your price. No pressure!)
