Amazing Australian Women (Twelve Women Who Shaped History)
by Pamela Freeman
Illustrated by Sophie Beer
This book is very interesting read. It is a children’s non-fiction book. I do believe more schools should teach Australian History. We have so many amazing people and facts about our country that are never taught. On reading this book I have learned more about these 12 amazing women. I never have really taken notice of the faces on our currency too much. Do you know who’s on our $20 note. Well if you don’t know then you will find out in this book.
There is beautiful illustration throughout the book. That I am sure the children will enjoy as they are reading all about these 12 Amazing Australian Women.
The Amazing Australian Women Featured in this book are:
Mary Reibey (Convict and Businesswoman)
Tarenore (Indigenous Resistance Fighter)
Mary Lee (Suffragist)
Nellie Melba (Opera Singer)
Edith Cowan (Politician)
Tilly Aston (Teacher, Writer and Disability Activist)
Rose Quong (Actress, Lecturer and Writer)
Elizabeth Kenn, (Nurse and Medical Innovator)
Annette Kellerman (Swimmer and Movie Star)
Lores Bonney (Aviation Pioneer)
Emily Kame Kngwarreye (Artist)
Ruby Payne-Scott (Scientist)
So, looking at this list how many Amazing Australian Women do you know?
To all the girls and even boys out there just remember that you can do anything. Keep your dreams alive, anything is possible. If you believe you can, you will. Just look at what these 12 amazing women have achieved.
I would highly recommend this book.
