Review:

“It is refreshing to see new girl-friendly twists on old themes that empower girls to believe in themselves and their abilities.” (Jeanette S. Gadeberg, Author of Raising Strong Daughters)

"Provides positive female role models.”

(Nicole Bondi, The Detroit News)

“Girls to the Rescue will please and inspire girls." (Women’s Circle)

“Forget about glass slippers and helpless damsels. The moral of this story is: Girls can do anything, even save the day!” (Peggy Orenstein, author of School Girls: Young Women, Self-Esteem, and the Confidence Gap)

“Girls to the Rescue is a powerful antidote to all those helpless, hopeless princess stories. These stories are amusing, poignant, inspiring, and ultimately healing.” (Mary Pipher, Ph.D., author of Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls)

“Inspiring.” (Mary Hance, Nashville Banner)

“Must reading.” (Lee Littlewood, Copley News Service)

“Delightful.” (Lynn Gibson, Spokane Spokesman-Review)

“Inspiring reading.” (Kansas City Star)

“Girls to the Rescue turns a new page and Prince Charming is history.” (Sallie Han, New York Daily News)

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-5ABeginning with a rhyming party invitation (which children can complete with their names and other details), this high-spirited collection of 21 poems celebrates birthdays with great verve. Students will love references to giving a prissy sister a worm for her birthday, inviting Frankenstein to the party, and eating a whole cake the night before the big day. In addition to Lansky's works, eight other poets, including Dr. Seuss, are represented. Lindstrom's black-and-white drawings play up the slapstick humor: a cake is made with flour (a yellow rose), the icing with ice; candles are blown out with such enthusiasm that icing, drinks, and party hats are victims of the gale. The book is similar to the work of Shel Silverstein and Jack Prelutsky, and the topic is beloved by all children. This slim volume is sure to be an instant success.ABetty Teague, Blythe Academy of Languages, Greenville, SC
