    This book is a treasure! I love the high quality binding with ribbon bookmark, the thick pages, and the beautiful illustrations. There is one page of text for each story, and I was impressed with the easy conversational tone to the storytelling, making it easy for young girls to relate to the iconic women they are learning about. It is so important for them to have heroes and heroines to look up to and emulate, and this book is chock full of them...

    This was the most wonderful book of stories for young girls! I thoroughly enjoyed it. Each contribution consists of one page, with a drawing of the woman whose story it is. There is also a shared scripture for each. These stories are stories from women and girls of the Bible and from the entire world: Jane Austen, Harriett Tubman, Elizabeth Elliott, to name a few. Very encouraging stories for young girls in the world today, stories that will help...

    I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.This is the same concept as Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls, but including only people with Christian faith. The concept was exactly the same. It was not a bad book to read, and the illustrations were good, but it felt too much like a copy of a concept already done - no original work put into it (even the structure of the book was the same as in ...

    What a wonderful book. 100 unforgettable tales of women of faith. I found this book to be very inspiring. Stories of many women of faith in our history.

    I won a copy of this written for young girls, to encourage them to try and do their best. Women can make a difference. Each is a 1 page write up and then a pic of the lady. Many will remember from Sunday School or Class at school. example: Ruth Bell Graham *married to Billy Graham, Harriet Tubman, Esther *from the Bible, Clara Barton, The Widow Who Gave 2 Mites *bible, etcVery well written book. One you can just read a page or two at the time, or...

    I love that the author has put together such a strong collection stories about women of faith who have changed our world for the better for young girls (or boys). Although written about women of faith and perhaps for Christian readers certainly the message goes across generations and faiths. I enjoyed the underlying concept of encouraging and inspiring young people to "become the world-changer" that God created them to be. The illustrations are b...

    I really enjoyed this sweet little collection, and think it is a great gift for a young girl. The featured Women of faith run the gamut, from Clara Barton to Naomi; Corrie Ten Boom to Jane Austen. I would have liked if more of the featured women had been secular, because it’s easier for young girls to relate to Rosa Parks than to a woman in the Bible whose name & history we don’t even know. Nevertheless, the positive message is there and in a...

    Amidst the myriad compilations of famous and notable people, “100 Extraordinary Stories for Courageous Girls” stands out in that it highlights specifically women of faith. This includes some women who were not necessarily praiseworthy but who nevertheless provide valuable lessons through their actions. One page is dedicated to each of the one hundred women portrayed alphabetically, alongside which is an illustration of them, and this setup is...

    The short, one page biographies about these 100 girls or women spans the centuries. Published by a Christian publishing group, Barbour, would have expectations that these would all be Biblical characters. Not so. This book draws from girls and women of faith throughout history - Biblical and secular.The connection is their faith. They are courageous in the face of what their experience presents to them and their life is one of faith. Faith in a G...

    In this new book author Jean Fischer lists 100 women that she considers extraordinary. Many are from the Bible: Esther, Jochebed, Ruth, Mary, and Noah's wife; many others are from history: Clara Barton, Florence NIghtingale, Harriet Tubman, and Rosa Parks; and some have lived in this century, such as Joni Eareckson Tada, Jackie Pullinger and Ruth Bell Graham. They all led different lives but they all possessed one common trait---they each loved G...

    Unforgettable tales of women of faith! The book itself is a hard cover, embossed, with very sturdy pages for many a page turning viewing. I was amazed at looking at all the names of the women in this book. So many I had forgotten and they all need remembering and telling to the next generation. Each page spread has a perfect length telling of a woman of faith, her amazing story, and a colorful picture to go along. I love that it gives the places ...

    100 Extraordinary Stories for Courageous Girls: Unforgettable Tales of Women of Faith is a great read for young girls. It is easy to read with a quick and short biography or each woman of faith. These women include ones that lived throughout history from the Biblical times to current living. I think many young girls would be inspired by reading their stories.

    100 Extraordinary Stories for Courageous Girls by Jean Fischer is a delightful book for all ages.I enjoyed reading the stories of girls and women of the Bible, along with those who lived years after Bible times. They came from all walks of life, poor and rich, single and married, very young and older, healthy and sickly. I was amazed at the faith and courage of these women, with a willingness to follow their heart and the Lord, no matter the dang...

    Jean Fischer has written a wonderful book for your tween entitled "100 Extraordinary Stories for Courageous Girls: Unforgettable Tales of Women of Faith." The title sums up what the book is about. There is a short biography of each of the 100 women from over the centuries whose faith helped them. (I found the stories interesting as an adult!) A question related to the biography is then asked for the young reader to consider. Lastly, a Bible verse...

    This book is geared towards girls 8 and up. I am 65 and I loved it! I learned about women that I have never heard of before. I also learned facts about women that I didn't know before. I learned that Jane Austen is buried at a famous church, not because she was an important author, but because she was well known for serving God. I also learned about Mary McLeod Bethune, The First Lady of the Struggle. President Franklin D. Roosevelt chose her as ...

    This book is gorgeous. The illustrations are very attractive and well done. Even better though is the content! My 3 girls (5, 7 and 9) love this book. They love to see all the things women have done. It’s encouraging and inspiring. The range of women included is amazing. There are women who are still alive as well as ancient women who lived 2 thousand years ago. The descriptions are easy enough for my 9 year old to read. Some even my 7 year old...

    I don't think I can say enough great things about this book! Geared toward young girls ages 8 and up but encouraging for older women like me. One hundred women are featured from the Bible, history, and to present day. I recognized many but also learned about women I had never heard about. Each is a one page biography along with a drawing of the person and scripture at the bottom relating to their story and also to inspire those reading. Some of m...
