Founding Mothers: Remembering the Ladies

By Cokie Roberts

#1 New York Times bestselling author and celebrated journalist Cokie Roberts brings young readers a stunning nonfiction picture book that highlights the female patriots of the American Revolution.

Beautifully illustrated by Caldecott Honor-winning artist Diane Goode, Founding Mothers: Remembering the Ladies reveals the incredible accomplishments of the women who orchestrated the American Revolution behind the scenes.

Roberts traces the stories of heroic, patriotic women such as Abigail Adams, Martha Washington, Phillis Wheatley, Mercy Otis Warren, Sarah Livingston Jay, and others. Details are gleaned from their letters, private journals, lists, and ledgers. The bravery of these women's courageous acts contributed to the founding of America and spurred the founding fathers to make this a country that "remembered the ladies."

This compelling book, based on the author's acclaimed work for adults, Founding Mothers, includes a rich time line, biographies, an author's note, and additional web resources in the back matter.

Goode's illustrations are often breathtaking. Roberts' lively text is illuminated with flourishes and curlicues along with winsome or whimsical portraits in what looks like ink and watercolor. It is a wonderful package, adding the women who made it work to the men we thought we all knew.--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Roberts has uncovered hundreds of personal anecdotes and woven them together in a single, suspenseful narrative with great skill."--Washington Post Book World
