Wednesdays with The Subversive Children's Book Club: Herstory

In honor of Women's History Month, this installment of the Subversive Children's Book Club features books about herstory, which we do not learn enough of in our schools thanks to bodies like the Texas State Board of Education with its love of curricula featuring Dead White Guys Only.  We can find herstory without textbooks when we have to, though.  We can even make it.  Enjoy.
