Product description

Amazon.com Review

Once it was hard to find books for girls that didn't feature damsels loitering on the sidelines or being rescued by dashing princes. Now paper heroines are generally brave and resourceful, but, alas, many of the books aren't memorable. Enter Erica Bauermeister and Holly Smith (500 Great Books by Women), book-lovers who collected fiction, biography, and poetry with girls aged 2-14 in mind. They have culled a stellar group of 375 titles divided into picture books, storybooks, chapter books, and more complex writings. Their lively, evocative reviews cover a peppering of old favorites like Madeline and A Wrinkle in Time, but many selections spring from different cultures and up-to-date issues.


Bravo! A much-needed treasure map of heroines and 'she-roes.' With its hundreds of titles and summaries, it blazes an important path in the forest of children's literature. -- Jim Trelease, author of The Read-Aloud Handbook
