There are fourteen poems in this picture book, each one celebrating the life of a girl who made a difference, usually in their adult lives. Amelia Earhart, Mary Jane McLeod, Violet Sheehy, Rachel Carson, Sacajawea, Ida Lewis, Harriet Hanson, Wilma Rudolph, Wanda Gag, Kate Shelley, Pocahontas, Maria Mitchell, Golda Mabovitch (Meir), and Frances Ward. Most of them went on to become famous but the book concentrates on a moment of strength in each female's early life. The last few pages tell how the world came to know each one.
