Books to Read for Every Age: Women's History Month - Sedgwick County Moms Network

 

Not only am I a bibliophile (someone obsessed with books), but I am also a certified history and English teacher. It goes without saying that my kids and I visit the library and local bookstores often. Books are all over our house. My kids are even allowed to stay up reading with their bed book lights. So, I wanted to share with you some fun books centering around Women’s History Month that you can easily check out at the local Wichita area libraries or purchase from our local bookstores.

Books to Read for Every Age During Women’s History Month

March is known as Women’s History Month. It is a month to lift female voices. It is a month to celebrate the achievements of women and acknowledge all the obstacles and adversity we’ve had to overcome in history. It’s a month to learn more about feminism. So, we wanted to share a list of books for each age to read during March.

Here is a list of books available at bookstores and libraries in the Greater Wichita Area. All links are connected to each book’s catalog page.

**Books-a-holic won’t be listed as it is a resale store. Feel free to call our local Books-a-holic to ask if there is a copy of any of these books are available.
