Boss Women by Gwen Richardson (Review & Giveaway)

Boss Women by Gwen Richardson is a rhyming story celebrating the accomplishments of seven African-American women who built their businesses from the ground up.

What a fabulous way to draw attention to women of color who are empowering young women to believe in themselves and their ideas and to create a better world. These amazing women have forged ahead in a variety of fields and built successful businesses. It was great getting to know more about these business leaders.

I found it interesting that the author decided to write in rhyme. Typically, biographies are written in prose. That sets it apart from other books on the shelf.

Staci Creekmore provided the illustrations for Boss Women. With a use of vibrant colors, the women who filled these pages come alive. A neat artistic feature is Creekmore’s illustrations of each boss woman alongside a photograph of that person. Underneath the photo and drawing that sits side-by-side on the page, is the name of the woman’s company, its location, and the company’s website.

If you’re looking for a book to empower your young woman, I recommend Boss Women by Gwen Richardson.
