From School Library Journal:

Gr 5 Up-Here are 20 examples of leadership, written by females who took action in their schools and communities to solve a particular problem or initiate social change. One girl started a lending library in order to share her love of reading with the members of her local scout troop. Another child started collecting food for the homeless and now at age eight is running her own eponynomous foundation. And still others have organized recycling projects and food drives and instituted programs about endangered species and for the handicapped and latchkey children. What each child or young woman has in common is a passion about a particular subject and a lack of inhibition about her ability to make things better in the world around her. Most importantly, all have proven to themselves that they can make a difference. Each story is followed by a ``What You Can Do'' section, questions meant to provoke thought, and a list of resources to contact for more information about a particular cause. The last section discusses what leadership is, and gives step-by-step guidelines for becoming a leader, quotes from notable women, and an extensive bibliography broken down by age group. Not everyone here succeeded in her goals, but all have learned important lessons from their endeavors. These wise and honest young voices will inspire both boys and girls, as well as adults. A valuable tool to spark discussion in social studies and civics classes.-Patricia A. Sarles, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
