Product Description

The first reference of its kind, Great Books for Girls is an invaluable 
list of more than six hundred titles--picture books, novels, mysteries, 
biographies, folktales, sports books, and more--that will encourage, 
challenge, and ultimately nurture in girls the strong qualities our culture 
so often suppresses.  

Kathleen Odean, a librarian and former member of the 
prestigious Caldecott and Newbery Award committees, has gathered and 
annotated a list of books starring bold, confident heroines for children 
from toddlers to age fourteen.  Here are old favorites such as Eloise, 
Harriet the Spy, Mrs.  Basil E. Frankweiler, and Ramona the Pest; new 
inspirations such as Cinder Edna, Sheila Rae the Brave, Herculeah Jones, 
and Princess Smartypants; and real-life admirable women such as Eleanor of 
Aquitaine, Jane Goodall, Toni Morrison, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Helen 

In these books, girls and women are creative, capable, articulate, and 
intelligent, solving problems, facing challenges, resolving conflicts, and 
going on quests.  They are not sidekicks or tokens, waiting to be rescued; 
they are doing the rescuing.  Nor are they waiting for a male to provide a 
happy ending; they are fashioning their own stories and their own endings.  
Packed with expert guidance,Great Books for Girls is an essential volume 
that will give girls of all ages the power of hope.
