Children's Literature - Beverly KobrinWe've done our best, but we still could do more, for women today hold only about 30% of the available professional positions. To encourage girls to focus on professions, introduce them to the "Women in Profile" series. This particular title features six writers: Beatrix Potter, Lucy Maud Montgomery, Astrid Lindgren, Maya Angelou, Jean Little and Judy Blume, plus brief profiles on seven more women of letters. Each title consists of eye-catching portrait-covers, colorfully photo-illustrated, magazine-style biographies that contain sidebars with "Key Events" and "Backgrounder" columns and pertinent quotations. Readers easily overwhelmed by large blocks of type will be particularly attracted to this series, which includes Explorer, Writers, Scientists, Political Leaders, Musicians, and Nobel Prize Winners.
