My daughter was given the wonderful Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls for Christmas and I spent the rest of the holidays searching for more books about real girls that we could read together, including Malala’s Magic Pencil and Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World.
So I was chuffed beyond words to receive A Shout Out To The Girls in the mail and found myself featured inside its glorious pages with 49 other Australian women. As mentioned in the review below, all royalties go to The Smith Family. A big shout out to Zoe Caracatsanoudis who illustrated the image of me.
Happy International Women’s Day.
What a fantastic book to add to your “Mighty Girl” collection! Covering a diverse selection of outstanding women from diverse fields of achievement and endeavor, this is a worthy addition to any primary or lower secondary collection. The layout is particularly attractive with a palette of gorgeous colours and each subject with a ‘shout out’ to the person and the reason, a quote that relates followed by a double spread page of information and facing portrait….This is a really beautiful book to savour and conveys so much positivity to readers about the limitless potential of women to succeed. As well all proceeds from royalties go to the Smith Family which is a terrific initiative.(Just So Stories blog)
