Celebrate Women's History Month!

Ella Fitzgerald, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Eleanor Roosevelt, Sonya Sotomayer, Julia Child, Maria Tallchief, Frida Kahlo and Georgia O'Keefe.

These are just some of the heroines that appear in my book, Every-Day Dress-Up (which came out in October). The little girl in the book ditches her princess duds to dress-up as real women from history every day of the week.

Kirkus Reviews declared it, "a happy antidote to the princess plague".

And the book was put on the Amelia Bloomer List of appealing children's books with feminist content. Very nice indeed!

To celebrate Women's History Month, I have written a special guest post on KidLit Celebrates Women's History Blog, appearing on March 3rd.

Plus, There will be an exciting event at powerHouse Books on March 25th, where I will read from Every-Day Dress-Up along with my husband, illustrator Sean Qualls, who will read from his swinging Ella Fitzgerald book, Skit-Scat Raggedy Cat.

Please come join us!
