    I've quite enjoyed this book. One of my favorite sections in this book was about Queen Christina of Sweden. Currently, there's been a lot of talk in the news about two particular UK individuals who want a little more freedom. Queen Christina, in the 17th century, felt the same way! After helping broker peace for Europe's 30 year war, she only ruled for 10 years before abdicating and moving to Italy...

Even fictional queens and mythical women are included, as figures of our imaginations that have influenced the way we think about women in power. Each short biography shows how each incredible woman came to gain fame and renown for her accomplishments and position. Every page includes beautiful photographs and illustrations, showcasing the history of the era in which these queens lived. The book is broken into sections and chapters about Empire Builders, Women of Action, Revolutionary Rulers, Culture Shapers, Monarchs of the Arts, Legendary Leaders, Queens of Knowledge, and Queens of Adventure. There were many names that I recognized, but even more that I had never heard of before. I was delighted to discover all these incredible women who fought, taught, and sometimes suffered for the good of their people. There are so many accomplished women whose contributions to history are barely remembered today, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading their stories. There are also the villainous queens included as cautionary tales about how power corrupts and becomes a weapon of evil in the wrong hands. And then there are the ladies who fall in the middle; they did some good, but they also did some bad. They united their country, but they had a lot of people killed. I like how the book writes about all the queens in a balanced way, stating the facts, and letting the reader decide for themselves. This book is wonderfully inspirational, and even includes an afterword that talks about the qualities of a good leader, and encourages the reader to carefully consider what they should do with their power as they get inspired to lead and break new boundaries. Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Media Masters Publicity in exchange for a free and honest review. All the opinions stated here are my own true thoughts, and are not influenced by anyone.

    When you think of a book about queens, you assume it’s going to be about queens who have ruled nations around the world for years and years. This book covers that, but so much more. Queens of England, Jordan, Babylon, you name it, those queens are featured. But this book covers all those women who are queens in their own right. Whether they are fictional (think Snow White or Sleeping Beauty), or Dolly Parton, the queen of country music, their stories are shared here. I absolutely loved reading th When you think of a book about queens, you assume it’s going to be about queens who have ruled nations around the world for years and years. This book covers that, but so much more. Queens of England, Jordan, Babylon, you name it, those queens are featured. But this book covers all those women who are queens in their own right. Whether they are fictional (think Snow White or Sleeping Beauty), or Dolly Parton, the queen of country music, their stories are shared here. I absolutely loved reading through this book and learning so much about women from the past and present who have stood tall and fought for rights of those less fortunate, ran companies, or led women to be inspired. Authors JK Rowling, Judy Blume, Agatha Christie, and Toni Morrison are featured and considered queens in their given genres. There are photos or illustrations to go along with every woman covered in this book. I especially loved the fashion of women rulers from centuries earlier. One of my favorite sections featured the current crown of Queen Elizabeth II. It is stunning with a 3,107-carat diamond in the center along with 2,868 other diamonds, 17 sapphires, 11 emeralds, 4 rubies, and 269 pearls. Unbelievably gorgeous. From the women who are well-known like Madeleine Albright, Barbara Walters, Simone Biles, Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, and Diana, Princess of Wales their stories inspire us to serve and fight for our futures. More of the less well-known women like the World’s First All-Female Anti-Poaching Squad or Linda Cobb, the Queen of Clean or Jill Tarter, Alien Hunter or Joan Ganz Cooney, the women who created Sesame Street or finally Maya Lin who created the design of the Vietnam memorial while in college at Yale give us reasons to continue to pursue our interests and talents. I thought this book was so well-done and would be an excellent addition to a classroom or home library. Male achievers are featured in the book as well so this is truly a book for everyone. I am quite certain kids will find someone in this book that inspires them to achieve great things. All the material is given in small but high-quality information targeted for upper-elementary to middle-school readers. But, adults will find this book fascinating as well. Stephanie Warren Drimmer closes the book with 5 tips for being a queen in your own right: ~Lead with Integrity ~Command with Courage ~Respect the Role ~Be Passionate ~Empower their People One of my favorite quotes from the book came from Grace Hopper, the Queen of Code, known for creating a universal computer programming language. She said, “You don’t manage people; you manage things. You lead people”.

    While I really like this book, I think that parents will need to make certain that young readers truly understand the difference between a ruling monarch and a high ranking individual in a field of endeavor. Also, the difference between fictional rulers in books or on the screen and true ruling monarchs. DISCLOSURE: I received a complimentary copy to facilitate a review.
