5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic 4 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It was a present for my 9 y.o. daughter, she loved it and read it immediately , the day after she brought it in the school and the teacher read it aloud.
Finally a book that proved that every girl has a brain and not only a body to look at.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Introductory Biographies 12 Jun 2013
By B Kiernan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a high school Literacy teacher. I had my doubts about using this book when I received it as the biographies were short and in large print. However, my students loved using this as an introduction to the lives of famous women. From this, they went on to
research those women whose lives interested them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book for anyone but especially for girls 31 Dec 2013
By Iowawoman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Girls need great role models too, and this book highlights 26 wonderful heroines! The book is well written and very interesting. It gives just enough information to get you interested in each person and the diverse cultures of the women make it even better. I had initially purchased this for a grand daughter, but when I googled the book to find out more, I found lesson plans based on this book. So, I ended up giving it to my daughter in law who is going to become a teacher. Girls need positive role models to look up to and this one packs 26 amazing women into one book. Don't miss this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do you know these Twenty-Six? 1 Feb 2014
By Holly T. Joseph - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I didn't before reading this, but it is a great way to learn of the importance of women in every walk of life. It is very readable and will get the point across to young listeners that women - whose names begin with one of the 26 letters - can do anything!
3.0 out of 5 stars I read it and enjoyed the information and thought the art was nice 12 Oct 2014
By Denise G. Fetrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I read it and enjoyed the information and thought the art was nice. I think it is a good introduction to the concept of being "more". The girl I bought it for does not love reading and this book didn't change her mind, but it really isn't the fault of the book.
