Description

Join legendary artist and activist Agnes Ayre (1890—1943) as she leads readers through an alphabetical introduction to some of the most remarkable women from Newfoundland and Labrador history.
You'll meet scientists, artists, philanthropists, writers, athletes, adventurers, and more. You'll also get to know a trailblazing group of suffragists who altered the course of this province's history.
Agnes Ayre's ABCs of Amazing Women demonstrates that within every individual is the ability to accomplish something spectacular; it also reminds us that that when like—minded people work together, they can change society for the better.
Filled with beautiful original illustrations, fascinating historical detail, and rarely told stories, this innovative ABC book will charm and inform children and adults alike.
