About the Book

How To Be A Heroine---For Girls: Inspiration from Classic Heroines is a work of love.  Since childhood I have read and reread beloved classics and would like to share ideas with a new generation of young readers who may not have encountered these wonderful books yet.

How To Be A Heroine will inspire girls to become the heroine of their own lives.  Favorite quotes from The Secret Garden  and A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett, Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, and Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, as well as a quote from Laura Ingalls Wilder,  are presented to the reader and followed up with useful suggestions and insights.

By reading about these beloved heroines and emulating their virtues,  young girls will see for themselves what a wonderful adventure their own lives are and how much more wonderful they can become.

For decades, children have read and loved these classic tales of other children and how they faced and endured hardships and conquered their problems.  For girls who have not read the books, and have only seen the movie versions or television programming, How To Be A Heroine—For Girls may inspire them to want to learn more about these literary heroines through the written word.  Character and values are discussed in an engaging manner and girls are encouraged to participate actively in their own growth and personal development.
