She Spoke is about fourteen women from history who have done something important. On the side of the book are fourteen buttons that you press to hear the women speak in their own voice about fixing a problem. Each page tells about a different woman. Jane Goodall wanted to help the environment for wildlife, Malala wanted to speak for girls so they could go to school and learn. Dr. Temple Grandin has autism. Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune was the first one in her family who learned to read, and her dream was to build an African American school for girls. She also made it possible for boys to go too. A lot of the women were the first in their family to go to college. The women all talk about what they believe in, and each one has changed their world.
I was so excited to readShe Spoke because of the push buttons on the side, but when I got the book, it was neat that there were so many women I had never heard of before. I really like learning about true stories and history, so She Spoke is the type of book that I like to read. I am almost nine years old and had to have my Yaya read with me because there was a lot of little writing. I would recommend this book to older kids, or to kids who will have their parents read it to them. She Spoke is a good book to learn about important women in history.
