Traci Sorell brings another great book for younger readers to enjoy! Based on the bestselling picture book series by Chelsea Clinton & Alexandra Boiger, this particular book takes a look at the life of Wilma Mankiller, first female Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation. It discusses the obstacles she faced, both personally and professionally, to becoming a leader who helped not just her own Tribal Nation, but all nations across the US to help reclaim their rights.
The "She Persisted" series gives young girls - and children of all genders - a look at women who worked hard to live their dreams. That despite different and difficult challenges they kept going for their goals, believing "No" was not an answer to be taken, and not accepting being told their dreams were too big or their voices weren't important.
