School Library Journal

Gr 4-8-Though by no means an exhaustive survey, this nifty book is filled with trivia about the accomplishments of girls and women throughout the ages. After opening with a day-by-day calendar of events in women's history, Hartman divides the information into topical sections, including chapters on American history, sports, literature, science, and careers. Famous women are highlighted throughout the pages, from political leaders past and present to the first woman to win an Olympic gold for skiing. There are also scattered bits of advice about health issues and relationships, as well as interesting tidbits about love and romance, mythological characters, and fashion trends. Readers will enjoy thumbing through this fact-packed text in much the same way they enjoy browsing "The World Records" books.-Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
