The Girls' Book of Wisdom: Empowering, Inspirational Quotes from over 400 Fabulous Females Paperback – October 1, 1999

Product Description

Imported from USA

From Library Journal
--------------------

Grade 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.
