The ESC Women's History Month Book List

Since today is Dr. Seuss's birthday and tomorrow is Read Across America Day, we thought that we'd do a list of some of the books that we're using to help us plan our blog entries for Women's History Month. We thought this was a good idea for a couple of reasons--it lets us share with you some books that we really like and that we've learned from, and it also lets us be lazy for the rest of the month and just refer back to this list every time we mention one of these sources.
