Did You Know?


Annalee Thorndike loved to make doll
clothes and dolls with her mother as a child.
She began selling her dolls after high
school to earn a little extra money.


Christa McAuliffe was one of over

11,000 applicants to the teacher in space
program. She did not mail her application
in until the last day of the deadline.


Jenny Thompson could swim before she
 could walk. She would flap her arms and
kick her feet. She could even take a
deep breath and swim underwater. 





Read about these and 22 other
 remarkable women from New Hampshire.
Each profile includes a biography, illustrations,
a timeline, additional fun facts, sources
for further reading, and a glossary.  





     "This book is terrific. It is very kid and teacher
       friendly. The layout is exactly what a child needs.
       The tidbits are definitely a plus. From a teacher's
       point of view it is superb." 

                -- Patricia Graves, retired fifth-grade teacher


      "For kids . . . Women of Granite is a good one. For
        grownups, it’s a good book to surf through. It brings
        Harriet Wilson . . . to life more than anything else I’ve
         read about her, and the same goes for Granny D. . . . 


      "It lives up to its title: these are women you should
        know. It’s just about the sheer accomplishments of
         women . . .
 worthwhile and presented nicely . . . "  

                                     --Lisa Parsons, Hippo Press
