Let's Hear It for the Girls: 375 Great Books for Readers 2-14 Kindle Edition
From the Publisher
As in their previous book, Smith and Bauermeister recommend a rich and wide-ranging selection of books that take us around the globe and across history. They introduce girls and women, both fictional and real, who are strong and resourceful, whether they are outwardly tough or quietly brave, ordinary or extraordinary.
Here are the best-loved females of literature, from Eloise and Miss Rumphius to Laura Ingalls Wilder and Harriet the Spy. There are accomplished women such as Jane Goodall, Harriet Tubman, Golda Meir, and Louisa May Alcott. And there are many new discoveries as well -- girls and women who hunt fossils, swim with sharks, outwit dragons, learn to read, win the Nobel Prize, make friends. These are characters, the authors note, who "teach us that 'greatness' can be defined in many ways."
Organized by reading level, this lively, browsable guide includes fiction, nonfiction, biography, poetry and picture books by both women and men writers from around the world. Each book is described in a warmly written entry that also includes original publication date, country, and genre. Cross-reference indexes by author, title, date, country, genre, and subject make finding books easy and enjoyable. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
