Canadian Women Now and Then: More than 100 Stories of Fearless Trailblazers
Canadian Women Now and Then is about a whole bunch of Canadian women who have done great things. It is a nonfiction book that teaches you about the lives of over 100 famous Canadian women. There are journalists, astronauts, servicewomen, artists, activists, actresses, and authors. Each career category shows a woman from the past and a woman from right now who are making a difference. Each page of the book covers a different woman, so there is a lot to learn about. The beginning of the book has a table of contents and the end has an index to help find what you are looking for. I read about women who I had already known like the astronaut Roberta Bondar, the author Lucy Maud Montgomery, and Olympic swimmer Penny Oleksiak. I also learned about so many women that I had never heard of before, like Emily Stowe, who was the first female doctor, The Famous Five, and Shaunawdithit, who was the last woman of her tribe and was dedicated to teaching about her culture before she died. My favorite woman to read about was Lucy Maud Montgomery because she wrote Anne of Green Gables. I read Anne of Green Gables this year, and my family is planning a trip to Prince Edward Island to visit the real Green Gables. The illustrations are not real photographs, but instead drawings of what each woman looks like. I wish there had been some real photographs of the women to see. I really like learning about real people and things they have done, and Canadian Women Now and Then gave me the chance to learn about over 100 women in one book.
