Kidlit Celebrates Women's History Month Year 5!

It's March again, and that means that Lisa Taylor of Shelf-employed and I are once again co-curating Kidlit Celebrates Women's History Month, a celebration of books for young people which celebrate notable women. Despite the progress that has been made, schools still spend comparatively little time on women throughout history; fortunately many books have been published for young people of all ages on a range of fascinating figures which can be used by teachers to supplement the curriculum or by parents at home. I hope you will check out this year's blog contributors, who include everyone from African-American ballerina Misty Copeland to award-winning nonfiction writer Sue Macy. You can "follow" the blog, subscribe by e-mail, and also follow the posts on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest, if you prefer!  A complete list of this year's contributors is available on the blog as well.

If you're in the Los Angeles area, I believe you can still order tickets for the 35th anniversary celebration of the National Women's History Project, which will take place on Saturday, March 28 at the Autry Museum and offers the chance to meet the 2015 honorees. It's a terrific opportunity to celebrate women's history with others.

Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity of aplomBombs

zooillogical-expiration-date,
with an IQ much higher than K2,
and an extraordinarily, sawcy, rowdy victory??
Here’s what the prolific GODy sed:
(what could be MOE exciting than the 3-Stooges??)

“Faith, hope, and love,
the greatest of these is love -
jumpy into faith...
and you'll see with love”
Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe
(what I write);
God believes in you.

"Thank you so much for the knowledge you share through your blog! Just started and it is overwhelming and scary when you realize the amount of things you just don’t have a clue!!! A few days ago I was on my desk wondering “what is the difference between a page and a post?!?!” and reading this post today made me laugh and it especially reassured and encouraged me.
See you at the next Frugal Friday Link Up Party (…just discovered that they exist!)!"
