A Is for Awesome! 23 Iconic Women Who Changed the World

Eva Chen, illus. by Derek Desierto. Feiwel and Friends, $9.99 (32p) ISBN 978-1-250-21599-4
In this alphabet board book, Chen, director of fashion partnerships at Instagram, celebrates 23 women artists, scientists, activists, entertainers, authors, and other influencers. Juno, the protagonist from Chen’s picture book Juno Valentine and the Magical Shoes, makes a brief cameo to kick things off: “There’s a whole world of inspiring sheroes out there.... Here are some of my favorites!” Chen features well-known contemporary figures, including Beyoncé Knowles, Malala Yousafzai, and Oprah Winfrey, as well as those less familiar to young readers (Katharine Graham, the first female publisher of the Washington Post, and businesswoman Pat McGrath). A reflective surface on the final spread enables readers to see themselves—literally—among the broad-ranging influential figures. Ages 1–3. (Feb.)
