Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In a much anticipated sequel to the bestselling young girl's companion guide, 33 Things Every Girl Should Know, comes another collection of stories, essays, and comics. Hands On! 33 More Things Every Girl Should Know includes everything from down and dirty practical advice to philosophical musings on the meaning of life from some of the most influential and successful women in the world.

The contributors range from writers and editors to gymnasts and astronauts. There's an essay entitled "Act On Your Passion" from Maggie Behle, who, despite being born with only one leg, went on to become a member of the U.S. Ski Team and win medals in several competitions. From Laura Lippman, a journalist with The Baltimore Sun and an award-winning novelist, comes "Listen To Your Body," a piece about eating sensibly and accepting your natural physique. Lucille Treganowan, an auto mechanic with two shops and a nationally-broadcast weekly television show called Lucille's Car Care Clinic, provides some road and car safety basics, including how to handle a flooded engine and what to do if you lock your keys in your car. Handywoman Beverly DeJulio offers a list of items everyone should have in a basic home tool kit along with some advice on how to fix common problems in "Get Handy Around the House."

Other offerings include "Remember Who You Want to Be" from the bestselling author of Ophelia Speaks; Sara Shandler, and "Take Control of Your Health" from Barbara Seaman, the founder of the National Woman's Health Network. Gymnast Vanessa Atler shares her thoughts in "Stay Connected With Your Family" and illustrator Ilene Beckerman uses some cleverly amusing cartoons to remind readers to "Remember, Nobody's Perfect." Financial expert, Neale S. Godfrey, explains the ins and outs of handling money, while an astronaut, Colonel Eileen Collins, talks about balancing risk with a sense for adventure in "Be Prepared and You Won't Be Scared." To round things out, master chef Sara Moulton explains "What I Learned in Cooking School" (it's not what you think) and offers a few tasty recipes as well.

For young women on the brink of adulthood who are looking to challenge themselves, direct their lives, explore their options, realize their dreams, or even just relate better to the world around them, Hands On! is the perfect guide. These 33 women provide diverse and exemplary examples of what's possible, and they do it with wit, wisdom, and an occasional bit of dirt under their fingernails.

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A companion to 33 Things Every Girl Should Know, Hands On!: 33 More Things Every Girl Should Know, edited by Suzanne Harper, offers "Skills for living your life from 33 extraordinary women." Colonel Eileen Collins suggests that girls "Be prepared and you won't be scared," then goes on to discuss the importance of developing a sense of adventure and curiosity, and taking risks; Lois Lowry, in the form of an anecdote, urges readers to "Write your name on a wall"; and Sara Moulton, former food editor at Gourmet, describes all the things that fell into place for her in pursuit of her dream, in "What I Learned in Cooking School." A thoughtful design and pithy headings make this an easy book to dip in and out of. ( Feb.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-A follow-up to Tonya Bolden's 33 Things Every Girl Should Know (Crown, 1998). Sports figures, politicians, authors, celebrities, and other successful women share their ideas for living life to the fullest. Topics covered include basic budgeting, car repair, taking control of one's health, manners, self-expression, self-reflection, and more. Though many entries are unevenly written, most offer comforting counsel and positive encouragement. Highlights include Naomi Shihab Nye's "Your Voice Is a Ticket," Iyanla Vanzant's "Know Your Inner ABC's," Lois Lowry's "Write Your Name on a Wall," and Jessica Lu's "Ignore Advice." Black-and-white clip-art quality graphics appear throughout. Brief biographies appear as endnotes. Interesting material for browsing but not an essential addition to the girl-power shelves.-Katie O'Dell, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
