Written by Heidi Poelman, the historical page-turner features illustrations by Giovana Medeiros and is published by Familius.
Available now, Courageous First Ladies Who Changed The World celebrates 11 trailblazing women who played key roles in their husbands’ presidencies and left an indelible mark on American history that is still felt to this day.

Fun and informative profiles include historical icons such as America’s very first First Lady, Martha Washington; Abigail Adams, who fought for women’s rights in the new land; and Eleanor Roosevelt, known as “The Most Important First Lady In History”; as well as modern favorites such as fine arts enthusiast Jacqueline Kennedy; cancer survivor and substance abuse/addiction advocate Betty Ford; health and nutrition champion Michelle Obama, and many more. Additionally, Courageous First Ladies Who Changed The World explores important values such as selflessness, perseverance, education, and humility, while encouraging young readers to forge their own path and make their own change.
