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 feel privileged 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.

My middle school daughters and I recently had the chance to review How to Be a Heroine—For Girls: Inspiration from Classic Heroines and we were so impressed with these amazing little books.

If you are homeschooling and need a way to draw your readers into classic literature, these books can be a fantastic place to start! The idea is to familiarize your students with beloved classics that they will want to learn more about. Books like The Secret GardenPride and Prejudice, and Anne of Green Gables are featured in this book.

How To Be A Heroine—For Girls: Inspiration from Classic Heroines helps young girls understand that life is an adventure. They will also realize they are in charge of their own lives and can make them even more wonderful as they grow.                                        Heather Bowen, Life of a Homeschool Mom
