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.
