Wonder Woman

If you took your kids to see the new movie this weekend you weren't alone. I'm pretty sure the movie is going to break some box office records. I find that anytime we watch an excellent movie we end up on some kind of a rabbit trail of as a result of its awesomeness. There are so many ways to go on this one, Wonder Woman herself, WW1, the history of women in comic book history. Now, how to fan that Wonder Woman spark? I dug around and found some resources for you. All the books were available at my library as of this post, if you want to buy them I've linked to Amazon. (How appropriate- right?)

The Junior Scholastic Wonder Woman issue from 2015 is luckily still online and worth a read for your grade to middle school kids.

And watch this excellent movie on YouTube: The Untold Story of American Superheroines

WW for YA and older

Great read for those of us who enjoy deeper research and a more academic style of writing. If I still had a high schooler I'd be real close to putting together a super hero mythology semester.

For the Littles: Classic WW

You've got her origin story complete with Greek Mythology all here.

The History

This book is great because it discusses the complete history of Wonder Woman from her beginnings to 2014. Again this would be a great spine for a high school unit study.
