She Believed: 12 Stories of Courageous Women of Faith Who Changed the World by Shiloh Kidz an imprint of Barbour Publishing

ISBN: 9781643522739
Hardcover $9.99 ~ Ages 5+
Shiloh Kidz-Imprint of Barbour Publishing
My thoughts:  This is a very nice collection of short biographies of courageous women. Written with the young child or young reader to understand, it of necessity focuses on the barest of details of the women.

The collection of women is "Hall of Fame" quality and readers should be encouraged as they grow older to read more about these women.

Included are missionaries, nurses, abolitionists,  musicians, and holocaust survivor.  Knowing that they lived during a time when historically women were relegated to the background and a mundane life, their accomplishments should empower today's young girls and women to believe as did these women that they, too, can do important work for society and for God.

I highly recommend this book for home libraries a well as school and public libraries.

About the Book: Girls are world-changers! . . . And this delightful storybook proves it!

Just for the girls in your life, ages 5 and up, this collection of twelve extraordinary stories of women of faith will empower girls to know and understand how women have made a difference in the world and how much smaller our faith would be without them.
