As a child, Laura Ingalls Wilder traveled across the prairie in a covered wagon. Her daughter, Rose, thought those stories might make a good book, and the two created the beloved Little House series. Sarah Breedlove, the daughter of former slaves, wanted everything to be different for her own daughter, A'Lelia. Together they built a million-dollar beauty empire for women of color. Marie Curie became the first person in history to win two Nobel prizes in science. Inspired by her mother, Irene too became a scientist and Nobel prize winner. Borrowed names is the story, in poetry, of these extraordinary mothers and daughters.

Highly recommended for the library.

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2011-04-07) Excellent Permalink

In a prose form of poetry that leads the reader gently into their lives, three sets of famous women and their daughters are brought to life. You will learn of their many accomplishments as well as their relationships and their love for each other despite their differences. I recommend this highly.
