Dear Book Lovers, Welcome! I am delighted that you have found The Through the Looking Glass blog. For over twenty years I reviewed children's literature titles for my online journal, which came out six times a year. Every book review written for that publication can be found on the Through the Looking Glass website (the link is below). I am now moving in a different direction, though the columns that I write are still book-centric. Instead of writing reviews, I'm offering you columns on topics that have been inspired by wonderful books that I have read. I tell you about the books in question, and describe how they have have impacted me. This may sound peculiar to some of you, but the books that I tend to choose are ones that resonate with me on some level. Therefore, when I read the last page and close the covers, I am not quite the same person that I was when first I started reading the book. The shift in my perspective might be miniscule, but it is still there. The books I am looking are both about adult and children's titles. Some of the children's titles will appeal to adults, while others will not. Some of the adult titles will appeal to younger readers, particularly those who are eager to expand their horizons.

A beautiful poster from Rachel Ignotofsky that tells the story of Strong Girl, Strong Women activists from around the world.

Rachel Ignotofsky is an author and illustrator who creates gorgeous and enlightening nonfiction picture books that readers of all ages will enjoy. I will be reviewing her book about women in science soon. She has created a poster that I think is just marvelous, and I would like to share it with you today. Take a close look at the poster to meet some of the world's women activists.
