Since 1995, United States presidents have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as Women’s History Month, recognizing the incredible accomplishments of women as activists, scientists, writers, artists, athletes, mathematicians, and beyond. Rourke joins the nation in saluting these women, this month and year-round.
“Rourke is proud to publish books that help students discover the people who’ve shaped the world as we know it, and who inspire us to continue our progress across the spectrum, from arts and science to social justice,” said Rourke’s Editor-in-Chief, Keli Sipperley.
Rourke’s popular informational fiction series, Time Hop Sweets Shop, uses a creative blend of fact and fiction to present the lives of notable contributors to U.S. history. Fiona and Finley’s family Sweets Shop is accessible from anywhere in time––and boy, do they have great customers! The siblings join notable people from throughout United States history on adventures that illuminate their struggles, accomplishments, and lasting effects on the world.
“The Time Hop books present a fact-based fictional story with nonfiction back matter, which gives further insight into a historical figure’s life and contributions,” Sipperley said. “The result is a fun read, with an educational bonus.”
