  2. There are several books on this list I haven't read yet. I'm checking now to see if my local library has them.

    I Am Nujood was a thought-provoking read for sure.

    My post.

  3. I've read a few but not all. You have on your list what I needed to add, younger, newer books that will become what we call classics someday

    Here's mine: https://www.ourtownbookreviews.com/2019/05/books-i-want-youth-to-discover.html

    1. You're welcome and thanks for the comment. Biographies humanize history in a way "regular" course-books don't do, so I think they would be a great way to teach history. :-)
