    • I would expect if I asked you who Sandra Day O Conner is, you might be able to name the first woman on the Supreme Court You might even know who Francis Perkins was The first woman on a presidential cabinet But who has heard of Nellie Tayloe Ross, who was the first woman governor.This is a sweet little picture book pretending she is all the famous firs women in US history Besides the women above, she pretends to be Jeanette Rankin, first woman in congress, and Susanna Madora Salter, first woman [...]


    • My granddaughter and I read this together She really liked the girl in the story continually changing her name and profession She out of all the professional roles suggested wanted most of all to be a judge The story was cute and the pictures adorable I thought this was a wonderful book to read to young girls, to show them they could in fact be whatever they wanted, including roles that are typically only thought of as for men Has a good section at the end that discusses the first woman mayor, g [...]


    • As an adult, I thought the book was great, but I don t think children will understand the references in the text to famous women in American history There is detailed information at the end of the book explaining who the women are, which is a good idea, but children young enough for a picture book won t appreciate that much dense historical text.I received an ARC from NetGalley.


    • This is a new addition to the Isabella series Isabella is ready to leave the house before her parents are even out of bed There is a big event to attend and she can t wait In order to get her parents moving she takes on the persona of various women in politics, in a historical story I did not know all the women introduced so will have to check some of them out They are briefly introduced and told what they did, without many details The hope, I assume, is to get little girls to do some investigat [...]

    • Normally, the thing I like about picture books is a good story combined with awesome artwork.In this book, the artwork is good, but the story I feel like the story is not written for child entertainment purposes, nor for educational purposes since not much is actually explained other than just using words that parents will need to explain I felt like it is written for the purpose of compaigning for the presence of women in politics and for a woman US president.On the plus side, there are things [...]


    • This is one of my favorite books on my list Isabella is a very imaginative little girl who plays pretend to the be the first female mayor, governor, judge etc The whole day she eager to be somewhere before her family is awake, has eaten, is ready She assumes this characters that represent important omen in political history all day long Finally she get to her destination and is thrilled to see the first women president at the white house The illustrations were really cute, Isabella in all her di [...]


    • I received an advanced copy of this e book in exchange for an honest review All opinions are my own This book is about a young girl who is very interested in politics She jumps into the characters of famous women in politics I think this would be a wonderful book for a young girl who is interested in government and women This book is especially relevant with the nomination of the first woman by a major political party I would recommend this book to girls around my girls ages, 8 12 ish The words [...]


    • Thanks to Netgalley and Sourcebooks Jabberwocky for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.I think it is an excellent idea to show little girls influential women in politics and explain democracy Honestly I am not so sure if everything is understable to target audience as most positions aren t explained and most is to read from the pictures I think a few words to every woman would have been much better There is a kind of glossar at the end of the book but I think this is way too much info drop [...]


    • Isabella has a wonderful imagination She sees herself as the first female mayor, first female congressman and It s wonderful to see such an inspiring book presented as a picture book Too often books like this are aimed toward chapter book and or biography readers The pictures are adorable with mice appearing as everything from the president to a room full of constituents A fun book to inspire girls.


    • Isabella is a favorite of mine She is always so much fun and always introduces readers to great people Be it characters from books, or historical figures It is a great way for children to learn about them through a fun book setting This one is just as great too It comes at a great time too, when the world is working to recognize girls and women past, present and future.


    • This is the kind of books parents buy their kids but the kids aren t interested The story itself would be confusing to anyone who didn t know who it was referring Nice concept but poorly executed for the age group.


    • I really love this I love the look at the important women in politics and then the look the to future at what woman are capable of This book isn t a read alone book for kids This book is meant to be shared and discussed with children Start the conversation and discuss powerful women


    • Educational and inspirational, though not entirely organic I recommend Isabella for young readers in the hopes that it sparks a desire to learn about the women included in this picture book.Also, the mother and daughter have purple hair More purple haired protagonists





    • I received an ecopy of this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review.The character of Isabella sequentially pretends to be famous women in U.S history e.g first mayor, first women in congress, etc Short biographies of each woman are at the back of the book I read it with my six year old who wasn t interested in the biographies, so to her, it was a book about a girl who kept changing her name Although, interesting to me, I don t think it works for the intended age group.



    • Love this picture book that features prominent women in politics within the story and provides a glossary in the back for information




    • Originally posted on Beauty and the Bean BootsIsabella takes charge as inspirational character for young girls.Isabella Girl in Charge by Jennifer Fosberry follows a young girl as she prepares to leave the house Through the process of putting on her clothes and eating breakfast, the girl changes to notorious women throughout the history of the United States who were heavily involved in government and politics.While I enjoyed several aspects that I enjoyed in this book, there were also several as [...]


    • 1.5ish stars.As with all of the Isabella books, I get what the author is going for And it s a very worthy idea It s just not a very good book It s the kind of book you buy for your kids trying to encourage them to LEARN and BE INSPIRED But it sits on the shelf because there are just so many cooler books to read.There are little tongue in cheek, punny references to woman in power that will go over the heads of half of the readers The adult ones at least Kids won t find them clever even after you [...]


    • I read this with my 8 year old and we both had a difficult time liking Isabella The story concept was very confusing and we kept hoping to have an explanation nearby either a panel on the page or on the following page to explain the characters Isabella were portraying It wasn t obvious to us right away that the characters started their day in a hotel room in Washington, D.C Likely, this is a technique for this series to lead the readers on until we get to the factual explanation page at the end [...]


    • I really wanted to love this book because of the description and the subject matter.However, the references to historical ladies in positions of power could only really be understood by adults When you remove the historical references that the target audience wouldn t understand, you re left with a confusing story about a vacationing girl who tells her parents to call her by a new name on each page.There are blurbs in the back about all of the women referenced in the story, so you can refresh yo [...]


    • Recent events prove that this book is still quite necessary, despite the strides in women s equality that are enumerated on the last two double page spreads of the book While the educational information is crammed into those few pages and readers within the targeted age group will most likely not decipher the biographical clues within the text, this picture book can be used as an important instructional reference for elementary school students I do wish the information was arranged differently, [...]


    • I received an advanced copy from Edelweiss for my honest review This book was okay Great for showing that girls can be leaders I wouldn t want my children boy or girl talking to me the way Isabella talked to her mother though.
