Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Once it was hard to find books for girls that didn't feature damsels loitering on the sidelines or being rescued by dashing princes. Now paper heroines are generally brave and resourceful, but, alas, many of the books aren't memorable. Enter Erica Bauermeister and Holly Smith (500 Great Books by Women), book-lovers who collected fiction, biography, and poetry with girls aged 2-14 in mind. They have culled a stellar group of 375 titles divided into picture books, storybooks, chapter books, and more complex writings. Their lively, evocative reviews cover a peppering of old favorites like Madeline and A Wrinkle in Time, but many selections spring from different cultures and up-to-date issues.

From Scientific American

A wonderful resource for parents who want to encourage their daughters to be strong, capable and self-reliant.

More About the Author

Erica Bauermeister is the bestselling author of the three novels. The School of Essential Ingredients (Putnam, 2009) follows the lives of eight students and their teacher in a cooking class held in a restaurant kitchen. Joy for Beginners (Putnam, June 2011) explores what happens to seven women who challenge one another to do one thing in the next year that is new or difficult or scary. The twist? - they don't get to choose their own challenges. The Lost Art of Mixing picks up four of the characters from the beloved School of Essential Ingredients, one year later, and brings four new ones into the mix, becoming a series of interconnected stories about food and ritual and family, in all the ways we find it. Erica Bauermeister is also the co-author of two nonfiction books: 500 Great Books by Women: A Reader's Guide and Let's Hear It For the Girls: 375 Great Books for Readers 2-14. She lives in Seattle and loves to talk with book groups. For more personal insights, you can visit her at www.ericabauermeister.com or at www.facebook.com/EricaBauermeisterAuthor.

"Erica Bauermeister writes prose delicious enough to devour." Tiffany Baker, NYT bestselling author

This book would have been a valuable resource, if it listed the books by reading level. I was hoping to find good chapter books for my daughter to read (2nd grade reading level). But all I find is a huge chapter labeled "Chapter Books: Ages 6-11". This book should only be recommended for parents who have lots of time to cruise the library going from book to book, looking for something at an appropriate reading level for their child.

This is a decent guide, so it's too bad it lacks age levels. If you are looking for a more up-to-date guide with more books and an age range for each book, try Great Books for Girls by Kathleen Odean, revised in 2002.

Great book! Steers you to old favorites and new finds via indices for author, title, date of pub, genre, region & subject. Recommended age ranges recognize the variation in reading development and draw you on to the next level. A fun book to read just on its own.

I have about 3 "best books for girls" books and this is the best . . . . It has books not listed elsewhere and it lacks the overly earnest, kid-lit-as-feminist-tract tone that some reviewers take when evaluating books for girls. (I'm a feminist so please don't take this the wrong way.) Many of my five-year-old daughter's favorite books are listed in this guide.

This was another nice listing of recommended books. There were many books to choose from, such as Anne of Green Gables, The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, Missing May, and so much more! There are summaries for each book, along with the number of pages, the author, year it was published, and the genre or subject. My only complaint is that the book does not divide the book into specific categories. For example, there will be a chapter called "Moving On: Books for Ages 10 and Up", but it's not divided into historical fiction, biography, sports, or another subject. It would be easier to find books that way! Otherwise, it was a fantastic book!

Let's Hear it for the Girls inspired my daughter to read Anne of Green Gables and then she went on to read all of LM Montgomery's juvenile work plus one adult book of hers too! Now my daughter is reading Gone with the Wind! Your Let's Hear it moved her from the Babysitters Club to big fulfilling healthy books!
