TEACH Services received the following review:
Doris Lacks' book, Girl Power, provides a wide variety of life illustrations. These stories provide examples to support you in life and usefulness. Her short stories provide a descriptive summary of forty-two women demonstrating successful lives in various life experiences producing powerful, successful outcomes. The author begins with brief accounts of three women from Bible times. She continues with stories from a variety of multicultural and racially diverse women ranging from Medieval Times to current days.
Her brief descriptions of the 42 women record their life events, interests, goals, capabilities, and accomplishments. These descriptions provide opportunities for "power" for those reading Girl Power.
Some women's names may be very familiar to you, and others may be completely strange. The wide variety of stories allows readers to learn about life interests, supportive family and life relationships, new experiences, interesting activities to nurture and support goals and capabilities, and exciting outcomes. Readers will have opportunities to see how many discoveries, experiments, outcomes, and inventions, even from centuries in the past, have implications on our lives today and in the future. As we read of personal accomplishments related to leadership, personal physical goals, entertainment expertise, and cultural awareness resulting in societal changes, we are challenged to become a part of the stories' outcomes as they relate to us - personal power.
I found Girl Power full of interesting and challenging stories of powerful "girls" through many centuries. This easy reading format provides a great opportunity to be challenged by the many women it describes.
