Horrible Book - worst of 2014

Founding Mothers by Cokie Roberts
Founding Mothers: The Women Who Raised Our Nation

By: Cokie Roberts

Genre:  Adult  Nonfiction

Pages: 384

Published: 2005

Read: October

1 out of 5

This book was supposed to be about the women that played significant roles in our history. It was definitely an informational text, but read more like a history textbook and could be used in the C.O.R.E curriculum for high school. In fact, that would be the only reason I would suggest reading it. Not only that, but very little was written about the women. It was more about the men and what they achieved. I know the men played a more significant role in our history, but that wasn’t how the title or summary depicted the book. All I learned was the Benjamin Franklin was a male slut and the women very rarely went by their given name. As this was a book club choice chosen by the members I am very interested to learn what they thought.
