Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This is a very informative collection of short biographies that inspires admiration for the young women subjects, and may well inspire some readers to take action themselves. Girl Warriors: How 25 Young Activists Are Saving the Earth does a good job not only of telling each subject's story, but of clearly explaining the issues they're taking on as well as what the impact or benefits are of their work and solutions. The format is very straightforward, so readers who are most inspired by colorful visuals may want to take it one story at a time, which is a good option since the stories aren't in any particular order.

Some of the common themes and threads that run through each story can seem repetitive when reading straight through. It's best enjoyed skipping around, reading one or two at a time guided by the reader's own curiosity. Websites and books listed at the end encourage further exploration for curious readers. It's a great resource and starting point for kids, especially girls, who want to know more about the climate crisis and social justice, and who could benefit from such inspirational stories.
