A treasure trove of women's wisdom selected especially to inspire and empower girls in all areas of life When women come together in one place to share their experiences, their dreams and wisdom, a very special resonance -- a powerful energy -- is created. — Marion Woodman

What if you could assemble hundreds of wise, accomplished women and girls, and listen to them share their favorite pearls of wisdom? With The Girls' Book of Wisdom, you can. It brings together more than 400 smart, successful individuals -- young and old, famous and ordinary, from the past and the present. They're scientists, business executives, writers, mothers, world leaders, actors, and athletes. Their thoughts and suggestions range from basic to brilliant, and encouraging to exceptionally empowering. My goal in editing The Girls' Book of Wisdom was to create a collection of quotes that could help any girl become more confident, feel better about her body, and learn and apply the secrets of a happy, successful life. The more than 500 quotes reveal women's and girls' personal success secrets and tell how to adopt the right attitude, overcome obstacles, make the most of disappointing situations, develop strong relationships, and more. I would have loved reading this book when I was growing up. If you're a preteen or teen who receives it as a gift, I hope you'll find it a big help with whatever you1re going through, whether at home, at school, or in your community. If you're a mom or dad, aunt or uncle, counselor, teacher, or other caring adult, I wholeheartedly recommend this book for the special girl(s) in your life!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Dee has gathered a collection of "empowering and inspirational" quotations from over 400 famous women and grouped them into 44 categories such as "Friends," "Perseverance," "Happiness," and "Leadership." Each chapter begins with a short motivational piece by the author, who encourages readers to take control of their lives by learning from the words of wisdom to follow. The women whose quotations are highlighted include Anne Frank, Rosie O'Donnell, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Jackie Joyner-Kersee. The collection is upbeat and lighthearted, but ultimately wearing when read all at once. (It feels like sitting through a motivational workshop.) Girls will probably want to read certain sections depending on what category of inspiration/motivation they desire and pick out their "quote of the day." The handy size combined with the accessible format will appeal to this age group.-Jennifer Ralston, Harford County Public Library, Belcamp, MD Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
