Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

One of Parenting Magazine's Top Ten Best Gifts for Kids

“Dower has crafted a fun-filled, well-designed book chock-full of facts, trivia, and advice . . . it stands out for its witty presentation.”—School Library Journal

For Girls Only is not the normal everyday type book . . . I would give it a five out of five. I couldn't put it down because it was so interesting . . . I recommend this book to girls who are in need of a break of long books and want a fun book.” Jordan from DogEared, National Geographic Kids’ book blog

School Library Journal

Gr 6-10

Dower has crafted a fun-filled, well-designed book chock-full of facts, trivia, and advice. Beginning with a letter that urges girls not to read the book from start to finish, but rather to savor the entries at random, the author includes the silly ("Menu of the World Weird"), the practical ("How to Write a Thank You note"), the mystical ("Phrenology anyone?") and the sage (tips on going green). Where's a great hiding spot for your secret journal? What's the deadliest diamond ever? Which talisman will bring you the most luck? These questions and more are answered. The design and illustrations are spot-on. In what could be a very busy text, the layout complements the words beautifully, creating a visually appealing package. The "For Girls Only SuperQuiz" is a tween/teen version of Myers-Briggs Type Indicator that's just plain fun. Also included is a bonus Tarot card, secreted between the pages of fortune-telling and luck entries. While the book does not address anything new or different, it stands out for its witty presentation.-Elaine Baran Black, Georgia Public Library Service, Atlanta

    Amazing and Entertaining Book!!!!!!!!!!! I purchased this book a

    Amazing and Entertaining Book!!!!!!!!!!! I purchased this book a few
    days ago and I love it! It is a great boredom buster for rainy days
    because it is chuck-full of fun activities, facts, and so much more! It
    also teaches girls the history of amazing women and their
    accomplishments, too, which I personally enjoyed.( But don't get me
    wrong- this is as far from a history lesson as they come! )The quiz at
    the end is also a terrific touch and like no other quiz I've ever taken.
    This book teaches you things about different cultures and other fun
    trivia, all in a fun way! Not to mention how to be come an expert in
    famous girl trademarks such as pedicures and princesses! This book
    combines facts with fun, telling girls just how amazing they are because
    it is 100% true (:
