March is Women’s History Month, a month to celebrate all the accomplishments of women throughout history.  It’s also a great month to check out a biography about some of these amazing women.  I love reading biographies, they can be heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time.  It’s so inspiring to read about women who have overcome adversity and hardships to achieve great things.  Stop by the library to check out a biography, maybe it will inspire the future leader in your house!
