100 Extraordinary Stories for Courageous Girls by Jean Fischer

About the Book

Girls are world-changers! And this deeply inspiring storybook proves it!

Just for the girls in your life, ages 8 and up, this collection of 100 extraordinary stories of women of faith--from the Bible, history, and today--will empower them to know and understand how women have made a difference in the world and how much smaller our faith (and the biblical record) would be without them. Featuring full-page, colorful illustrations alongside the true stories of amazing women like Lydia, Naomi, Rahab, Rebekah, Jane Austen, Corrie ten Boom, Bethany Hamilton, Rosa Parks, Mother Teresa, and dozens more, the stories of these 100 women will encourage and inspire girls to become the world-changers God created them to be!


My Review

Wow! What a fantastic book for girls to learn about Biblical & historical women from all different eras that loved the Lord and made a difference. For myself, I learned about women that I had never heard of that stood up for what is right. This book introduces girls to people like Rosa Parks, Joni Eareckson Tada, Florence Nightingale, wives of many famous preachers and missionaries, martyrs throughout the ages, Lottie Moon, Annie Armstrong, Harriet Tubman, and countless Biblical characters such as Mary Magdalene, Rhoda, Abigail, The Proverbs 31 Woman, and so many more. This book was written appropriately for ages 8 and up in a way that they could read about a woman a day. Each day has the Scripture passage the person is in (if they are a Bible character), and all the women have a verse that pertains to their stories at the end of the writing. I would recommend this for homeschoolers to supplement history, a book to read to your daughter every night before bed, or just one for your avid reader daughter. Especially with books like this being put out there with secular heroes who are being praised for all the wrong reasons, this book reminds us of women and their equally important and unique role they have to play in God's kingdom. My heart was truly blessed, and I can promise you, you will get as much out of it as your child. The book is also very attractive with beautiful illustrations, good quality, and a nice bookmark.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
