Review:

"Each book focuses primarily on the subject's childhood and formative years, and on the decisions and events that led her...volumes include good-quality, full-color reproductions of their works and black-and-white photographs of the artists themselves, which add immediacy. Solid introductions."
-- School Library Journal (September 2002) (School Library Journal 20020901)

"The strength of the female spirit was a neglected topic for far too long. Now that opportunities for women have reached new heights in our world, it is critical to nurture the spirit in our young females and inspire them to continue to break new ground. This series intrduces the stories of four strong women (Georgia O'Keeffe / Anne Frank / Frida Kahlo / Mother Teresa) who forged their own paths in the world, despite many hardships and setbacks...All four of these women were undaunted by the hardships they encountered, pushed on by their strong wills and determination...Each biography sends the message that women can make a powerful impact on the world."
-- Library Talk (November 2002) (Library Talk 20021101)

"Georgia O'Keeffe:Desert Painter and Frida Kahlo: Mexican Painter-- Each book focuses primarily on the subject's childhood and formative years, and on the decisions and events that led her to become an artist. Don't look for extensive coverage of the women's careers; rather, a general overview of their most significant achievements is presented in clear, accessible prose. Both volumes include good-quality, full-color reproductions of their worlds and black-and-white photographs of the artists themselves, which add immediacy. Solid introductions to two fascinating individuals."
-- School Library Journal (September 2002) (School Library Journal 20020901)

"A simple, straightforward narrative,..Numerous black-and-white and color photos of Frida Kahlo and her paintings add further to readers' appreciation..."
