In “Founding Mothers: Remembering the Ladies,” Roberts offers America’s children a much-needed and long overdue look at the wives, mothers, sisters, and daughters who helped forge our great nation. In a lively, gorgeous, whimsically illustrated children’s book based on her bestselling adult book, she introduces young readers to the brave, brilliant, and enterprising women whose influence on the founding of our country was as instrumental as that of the men whose names are inked in history.

From Abigail Adams, Dolley Madison, and Martha Washington to lesser-known figures like Catharine Littlefield Greene and Sally Livingston Jay, Roberts shares the wonderfully inspiring stories of our Founding Mothers – the women who tended home and hearth often under dire circumstances, ran farms and businesses, fought on the front lines of battle, wrote propaganda that called a nation to arms, acted as spies, and raised money for the troops. She weaves together anecdotes, diary excerpts, and correspondence; draws on military records, newspaper accounts, songs, and poetry; intersperses her own insightful and colorful commentary throughout, and provides a historical timeline highlighting women’s roles during key events of the American Revolution.

In “Founding Mothers,” Roberts introduces young readers to women who faced an uncertain future, believed in the revolutionary concept of a democratic society, and offered a steady hand to guide the fledgling nation.
