I LOVE THIS BOOK SOOOO MUCH. Even though there's a lot of text, I was shocked by the attention span my son had for it, even as a baby, and if you want to shorten the reading you can choose to just either read just the left page (four-lines of rhyming text about the explorer) or just the right page (a single sentence telling you something else about the explorer and their name.) The illustrations are ADORABLE and my favorite part is that I feel like I learn something reading it as an adult while reading something to my child that they really enjoy too.

I love this book! Definitely one of my favorites, containing little bios for important people in history. This book has great content and facts without making the text too long. Plus, the illustrations are amazing! The only thing that could make this book better for me would be for a few more influential women to be included in the main portion of the book, but I love the women that are included and think they are fantastic role models for girls and boys alike! Plus, there are more explorers in the back to learn about (women and men)! :)
