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.

From the Publisher:

Following their highly acclaimed 500 Great Books by Women: A Reader's Guide, Erica Bauermeister and Holly Smith address the need to provide children with role models who are fearless, fair-minded, funny -- and female. Let's Hear It for the Girls reaffirms the authors' belief "in the power of books to give children a vision of what is possible."

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.
