Happy Women's History Month 2016

After five years of Kidlit Celebrates Women's History Month and many fascinating posts, we are taking a hiatus from the blog this year due to other commitments. Many thanks to all of those who have been following our posts and to the many authors and bloggers who have contributed in past years. We are excited with the many new books out this year on outstanding women and hope you will be exploring them this month. This year's theme of "Working to Form a More Perfect Union: Honoring  Women in Public Service and Government" is particularly timely as the possibility of a female president--or at least a female presidential candidate for one of the major parties--becomes increasingly likely. What better time to educate young people about the important role of women in history.
