Snow White

Snow White a Graphic Novel is the classic Snow White story set after World War I. During the war while many men were serving in the military, many women did things they had not done before, like working outside the home in factories and businesses. During this time more women went to college and they won the right to vote. It is a really interesting time to set a story like Snow White, a story about a girl who seems to rely entirely on other people to rescue her or take care of her.

In this telling, Snow is strong and resilient and brave. She relies on her friends. Seven friends. I bet if you try to guess who they are, you’ll be wrong! This time around, Snow is rescued, but she does her own rescuing too! A great ending to a book that changes up the Snow White story to highlight how you get by with a little help from your friends!

“Stories, both real and imagined, show what girls can do. The stories of women’s lives, and the choices they made, encourage girls to think larger and bolder, and give boys and men a fuller understanding of the female experience.”
