Great Books for Girls: More Than 600 Recommended Books for Girls Ages 3-14
Completely revised and updated with nearly 300 new titles, "Great Books for Girls" remains an invaluable tool for anyone who wants to help shape the literary life of a young girl.
Five years ago Ballantine published "Great Books for Girls" to remarkable acclaim. More than just a list of titles, it was the first guide to help girls find books that would inspire, challenge, and ultimately nurture them. The last five years have seen enormous strides for girls and also children's publishing. With this in mind, Kathleen Odean has thoroughly updated the original edition. As before, each entry is ranked by reading level and includes a brief commentary about the book's content. Out of print or difficult to obtain books have been replaced with books published in the last five years that readers can find in most libraries and bookstores. It is important for young girls to have the right role models and Odean's book is one way parents, grandparents, teachers, and friends can be sure girls are empowered by what they read.
