Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-9-Rimm has adapted her best-selling guide to success for women, See Jane Win (Crown, 1999), for a younger audience. Here, she offers advice and strategies to help readers become "I CAN girls"-individuals who are smart, motivated, creative, and persistent, among other admirable qualities. The message is strong and simple, the advice is practical, and readers looking for guidance and direction will respond positively to the book's format. The author tackles issues such as self-esteem, failure, and change in a clear and gentle manner. Each chapter offers basic tips on how to improve one's skills, both academic and social, along with quizzes and activities. Success stories and inspiring quotes from famous and successful women from a wide range of backgrounds and careers are scattered throughout. A useful self-help book and practical guide to life.

13 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Carolyn K. of Hoagies' Gifted Education Page on May 28, 2003
Format: Paperback
A fun-and-valuable read for girls in upper elementary or middle school, Rimm's See Jane Win for Girls is a self-esteem boosting, self-discovery book that girls enjoy. My 12-year-old daughter enjoyed reading this book to reveiw with me, and she was smiling often, and even laughed out loud.
From Brainpower to Social Smarts (or not!), continuing to tough topics including When Things Change (moving, new school, divorce, etc.) and Family (anger, parents, siblings, and more), Rimm talks about many of the everyday and extraordinary issues facing smart girls today, and offers introspection and ideas for dealing with them, and growing from them.
See Jane Win for Girls is mixed with quotes and questions from young girls, quotes from grown-up girls, and inventories and tips to make the book even more personal for your smart girl.
I'd recommend this book for all gifted young girls, before, during and after those difficult middle school years.

This truly is a wonderful book, full of encouragement for young girls everywhere.
Written in a way that is both entertaining and also with great insight, it's sure to catch any
young readers eye.

I found myself smiling, shaking my head in agreement and truly enjoyed the "I Can" sections.

Tips on self-esteem, improving your social
skills,help with your family, dealing with changes, it's all there.
This is an outstanding book for the entire family to share! Also interactive with the reader, which is always a plus!

Very good read!

Dr. Rimm has done a fantastic job of translating her findings from her research for See Jane Win and How Jane Won into a format that girls can appreciate and relate to. I plan to give this to my niece and any other girls who can use it.--Catherine Dee, author of The Girls' Book of Success (2003)

I first found out about this book through a friend's daughter who was reading it. Her Mum had bought it for her at a parenting course she had been on.

My 9 1/2 year old daughter is reading it and we have had some really great mother daughter discussions about the content of this book. It gives some really inspiring advice and anecdotes from successfuil women and is such a true reflection on life, people, relationships, becoming your own person and much much more.

It is difficult if not impossible to find a N.Z. book like this and yet this book reflects our lifestyle in N.z. as much as anywhere else.

I love this book because it challenges the reader and brings about self reflection on so many aspects of life. It is also a tremendous place to start as regards parent child dialogue because the book takes the lead and gives the parent an opening into many fruitful discussions and personal sharing on their own life experiences.

Every preteen and teen should read it and i am so grateful to have found it.
