She Is…My Book About an Amazing Woman I Know
by Alana Pedalino and Hisami Aoki

What better way for your class to kick off Women’s History Month! This classroom activity asks each student to choose an “ordinary” woman in their lives—maybe a mom, sister, aunt, coach, or teacher—and create a short nonfiction book showcasing why she is an inspiration.
