WOMEN WHO BROKE THE RULES series by Kathleen Krull, New York: Bloomsbury Publishing Inc., 2015. 48p. hc. $16.99 each    Gr.3-5   JUV

Krull, an acclaimed biographer, just rolled out a fantastic series of nonfiction books about notable women who defined their own roles in history.  The books are published as a classroom set with similar covers, six chapters apiece, and the same number of pages, but each one has a different illustrator to lend individuality to the books.  The text is easy to comprehend and includes personal stories that make the information more memorable for readers.  Dolley Madison, Judy Blume, Sacajawea, and Sonia Sotomayor are the subjects of the first four books in the series, soon to be followed by Corretta Scott King and Mary Todd Lincoln.  These books make it fun to learn history!
