Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge: Women's History Month Continues

During the month of March, I dedicate my Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge posts to Women's History Month and focus on books that celebrate women and their contributions to our world. If you check out the National Women's History Month website, you will discover that their theme for 2018 is "Nevertheless She Persisted". 

Last week, I shared 18 picture books celebrating women that have been or are just about to be released in 2018. You can check out the post, here. This week, I continue to share titles that celebrate women but are longer in length. All of the titles below are from either 2017 or 2018.
