They are smart, resilient, and brave — exactly the type of characters that parents and children who contributed to the Scholastic Kids & Family Reading Report say they are looking for in kids’ books.

Relatable characters close in age to your child will help them feel seen and understood, while adult women from history can be role models for overcoming challenges.
