A Kid's Review on May 9, 2007
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In this delightful collection of girls saving the day, a gathering of stories from differing authors is amassed. Take your pick from a courageous heroine battling thieves, an assistant to the Fairy Godmother herself, and much more. Highly recommended as the perfect bedtime story.

Girls to the Rescue is an easy-reading example of girls doing creative and heroic things to make their worlds a little better. I've read it to my 7-year old, and given it as a gift to a 12-year old. We're never too young or too old to know women rock!

I got this as a free read on kindle, I loved it so much I bought three of the paperback copies to send the three baby girls in my family. I wanted them to grow up knowing you didn't need a prince charming or violence in your life to solve your problems. Excellent stories for young girls.

This series is awesome! I bought them for my daughter. I wish I had these types of stories when I was young. Instead of the classic "damsel in distress," they depict young girls with positive characteristics - independent thinking, confident and courageous. I highly recommend these books to parents of elementary to middle school aged girls.

Stories in which the young girls save the day. A very good book for girls about ages 8 to 12. Provides a solid footing with heroines, before the girls hit the tween years with all the vapid glossy magazines that focus on superficial looks. After reading these kinds of books for a few years, my daughters were not interested in reading the vapid magazines. They grew into self sufficient "can do" young women. I recommend these books.
