100 Extraordinary Stories for Courageous Girls by Jean Fischer

About 100 Extraordinary Stories for Courageous Girls:

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

This collection of 100 extraordinary stories of women of faith – from the Bible, history, and today – will empower you 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 true stories of amazing women like: Lydia, Naomi, Rahab, Rebekah, Jane Austen, Corrie Ten Boom, Bethany Hamilton-Dirks, Rosa Parks, Mother Teresa and dozens more!

The stories of these women will encourage and inspire you to become the world-changer God created you to be!

My thoughts:

My daughters and I love reading this book! I'm learning about these women right along with my daughters. I knew most of the Bible characters and some of the modern women, but there are many featured in this book I had never heard of before. Henrietta Mears, Saint Blandina, and Elizabeth Fry, to name a few. I was delighted that at least three of the stories are about women who are still living as my older daughter had asked early on if any of these women were still alive.

Take a moment to look at the photo next to this text. The items in photo were things I found in my house and they were all produced or started by women featured in this book!

Now, more about our experience with this book: 100 Extraordinary Stories for Courageous Girls by Jean Fischer is available in hardback binding with a built-in bookmark (which I love). My older daughter remarked on how much she likes the illustrations. There is one vibrant illustration for each woman's story. Some resemble the actual women and others seem to be artistic interpretation.

Both my 6YO and my 3YO enjoy this book. My older daughter and I read about six stories at a time. My 3YO loses interest after two or three. It is probably most appropriate for children ages 6-12. Each narrative concludes with a concept for reflection or a question for discussion.The stories are in alphabetical order which led to a little confusion for my 3YO as we read about Elizabeth (the mother of John in the Bible) and then about Elizabeth Elliot. She questioned if it was the same Elizabeth.

I recommend 100 Extraordinary Stories for Courageous Girls by Jean Fischer to any family with daughters. The true stories are entertaining and, as the title suggests, aimed at helping girls learn to be strong and courageous.
