Description

She's all that and so much more! All kinds of girls -- tomboys and divas, workers and dreamers, sisters and soul mates -- appear in this collection. Eighty poems from writers such as Maya Angelou, Aileen Fisher, Eloise Greenfield, Jack Prelutsky, and Janet S. Wong tackle the themes that really matter to girls, from family and best friends to boys, body image, having fun, and dreaming about the future. Lively illustrations by Susan Hellard dance across the pages, complementing the diverse poetic moods and styles.show more

Review quote

Publishers Weekly She's All That! Poems About Girls, edited by Belinda Hollyer, illus. by Susan Hellard, includes more than 80 poems from Gertrude Stein, Eloise Greenfield and Jean Little to Roald Dahl and Jack Prelutsky. Many are funny, others sad (e.g., Judith Viorst's "Since Hanna Moved Away"), but all convey something that girls can recognize from their own experiences. A magenta ribbon lets readers keep their place. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information. Children's Literature Too few children read really good poetry; this book is a wonderful introduction to a wide variety of poems and issues to which every young girl can relate. School Library Journal This title delivers timely and accessible poems that will speak to modern readers.show more
