    1. This is a book I got from Netgalley. Each chapter focuses on a different female from history who made an impact on the world and was somehow strong, determined, motivated, courageous, spirited, or overcame some obstacle of her time.There is history, but it is also told a bit like a short story. At the end of most chapters, there is a quote by a young child talking about how they plan to rock the world when they grow up.Some of the women are obscure, but there are some famous ones, like Esther, C [...]

    2. I have to admit when I saw that McCann had included a story about Grace O’Malley the Pirate Queen of Ireland I was drawn to the book since she was a hero of mine as a kid. Not only did she do a fantastic job on the hero Queen’s story but the rest of the book was an amazing collection of diverse women that girls around the world can find inspiration in across a wide spectrum of careers and challenges.McCann covered the globe to find authors, dancers, scientists, politicians, and more to show [...]

    3. When I was in elementary school, we had a library. There were picture books, and non-fiction books, and all the sorts of books you would expect to find in a school library, I suppose. The room had been a classroom before the PTA converted it into a library, so it wasn't huge, but there was one section I loved. It was two book cases near the little kids section that held biographies, 921 in the Dewey decisive system. They had a lot of "Lives of famous people when they were kids" series, and I ate [...]

    4. OK, I have to admit. I did not read this book cover to cover. I read the chapters on the women I was particularly interested in and a few others that caught my eye. But I really should have. If this was around when my children were in there pre- and teenage years it would have been a mandatory read. Not just for my daughters but for my son as well. These people truly rocked their worlds and, in the case of the historical characters, are rocking it hundreds of years later. Heroines of science, en [...]

    5. More Girls Who Rocked the World by Michelle McCann is a story about girls under the age of twenty who rocked the world. Some of these girls are about our age and some of them are older, yet they all had bravery, survival skills, were talented and started movements. The forty-five stories in this book range from a sharpshooter (Annie Oakley) to a pirate (Grace O’Malley) to a Beyonce!More Girls Who Rock the World by Michelle Roehm McCann is an amazing book! I love how many talents there are. Eac [...]

    6. I don't know why I'm surprised that I was left so inspired by the women in this book. The real surprise should be the lack of inferiority complex I'm sometimes prone to.I loved reading the stories that made these women who they are today. It's such a great and brief biography. Though be warned if you're anything like me you'll end up looking up more books about all these women.I've said it multiple times before but I find it kind of sad that we have to have books just about women in history beca [...]

    7. My daughter loved the first Girls Who Rocked the World, and if possible, she liked this one even more. This is a great way to introduce kids to important women in history. The stories are just the right length and are written as stories rather than just facts so they are more appealing to kids who might normally just choose fiction. The wide selection of women covered is also a great way to show girls that there are all sorts of heroes that they can look up to.
