Reviews - What do customers think about Let's Hear It for the Girls: 375 Great Books for Readers 2-14?

Pretty Good Book  Feb 9, 2003
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!
Good but not the best guide out there  Jul 7, 2002
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.
Fabulous life-changing book for my daughter!  Jun 16, 2001
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!
The best of the "Books for Girls" books  May 9, 2001
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.
A reference to curl up with for adults and children.  Oct 12, 1999
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.
