What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Who Did It First? is a boldly illustrated middle-grade compendium featuring the women and men who revolutionized politics, policy, and philanthropy, and the “firsts” that made them extraordinary leaders.

You may know that Thurgood Marshall was the first African American Supreme Court Justice. And maybe you know that Benazir Bhutto was the first female prime minister of Pakistan. You might not know that George Shima was the first Japanese American millionaire. Or that Schuyler Bailar is the first openly transgender NCAA Division 1 swimmer.

Who Did It First? 50 Politicians, Activists, and Entrepreneurs Who Revolutionized the World celebrates fifty trailblazers—women and men, well-known figures and lesser-known heroes—who made the world a better place. Filled with compelling profiles highlighting what each subject accomplished first alongside vibrant illustrations, this gorgeous book has something for every young reader to cherish.
