It’s back! Cathy Mere’s annual 10 on the 10th picture book blogs.  This year I am doing a shameless plug, by using books that can be found in my book I co-wrote with Dr. Christina Dorr, “Linking Picture Book Biographies with National Content Standards: 200+ Lives to Explore”, which will be published this fall by Libraries Unlimited.
 All of the books I have chosen are 2014 publications, with the exception of 2 with 2015 copyrights.  They are all picture book biographies about women, those who followed their passions and didn't let gender bias or other issues keep them from their goal.

Taking Flight by Michaela DePrince & Elaine DePrince

Sally Ride: Life on a Mission by Sue Macy

3  Searching for Sarah Rector: The Richest Black Girl in America

The Scraps Book: Notes From a Colorful Life

Stand There! She Shouted: The Invincible Photographer Julia Margaret Cameron


6 Wangari Maathai: The Woman Who Planted Millions of Trees by Franck Prevot(2015)
   How I Discovered Poetry (Marilyn Nelson)
         Mahalia Jackson: Walking with Kings and Queens (2015)

Florence Nightingale by Demi

Terrible Typhoid Mary: A True Story of the Deadliest Cook in America by by Susan Campbell Bartoletti (2015)

II   I loved that each of these women, in following their passion, also found their joy.  I consciously search for joy in my life everyday!!

     Enjoy these books and all the rest suggested today!!
