Bahni Turpin’s and Adenrele Ojo’s crisp style introduces 40 women who made an impact through their determination and innovation. These brief biographical sketches, filled with interesting information for young listeners, are narrated with energy and enthusiasm. Turpin and Ojo highlight author Harrison’s appealing choices of women to learn about, whether they are familiar names such as physicist Marie Curie and painter Frida Kahlo, or those who may be new to this audience, such as chemist Asima Chatterjee and physical therapist Bessie Blount Griffin. The lively opening suggests that those listening explore their own worlds with imagination, making mistakes and asking questions. Looking at the images in the book or the accompanying PDF will likely help keep the women distinct for listeners. S.G. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
