Kathleen Odean, a librarian and former member of the prestigious Caldecott and Newbery Award committees, has gathered and annotated a list of books starring bold, confident heroines for children from toddlers toage fourteen. In these books, girls and women are creative, capable, articulate, and intelligent, solving problmes, facing challenges, or tokens, waiting to be rescued; they are doing the rescuing. Nor are they waiting for a male to provide a happy ending; they are fashioning their own stories and their own endings. packed with expert guidance, this is a essential volume that will give girls of all ages the power of hope.
