Editorial Reviews

Using a fun format, the Girl's Guides series offers basic advice on topics that would interest most girls. Each short guide provides common sense on a specific subject in an encouraging tone to bolster a girl's selfesteem. Get Involved! encourages girls to find a cause they are interested in and to make a difference. Teens are guided to discover their talents and are encouraged to use them to help others. Ideas run the gamut from helping at a nursing home to planning one's own major volunteering project. The guides do not give indepth information but present the basics in a format that girls will enjoy reading. The same introduction prefaces each book, mentioning the physical and emotional changes that occur during middle school years. Web sites, books, and organizations where girls can get more information are listed. Public, elementary, and middle school libraries will find this series worthwhile as introductions to topics that many young girls want to know about. Glossary. Index. Illus. Further Reading.

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Chatty and casual, this title outlines volunteer opportunities and activities for young women. Loosely defined chapters offer suggestions on where to volunteer, how to approach organizations, and how to determine individual interests. Two profiles of successful volunteers are offered as inspirational stories. Full-color photos showing multiculturally diverse girls at work and a host of computer-generated images appear throughout. While the message is certainly a worthy one, everything about this book, from its girlfriendlike tone to its bright, jazzy graphics and fonts give it a certain flipness and a strictly ephemeral quality.-Christy Norris Blanch- ette, Valley Cottage Library, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
