Timberdoodle's review Learn more
 
As a mother of four daughters, I have seen firsthand the struggle to find God's will in a woman's life. The road our daughters choose is radically different than the one the world is promoting, but it is the one they know God is placing them on. Throughout the centuries, women have made difficult, and many times unpopular, decisions. Not all of them would I support, but historically, you cannot deny that these are women who have impacted the world for Christ.

Ten Girls Who Didn't Give In tells the stories of Blandina, Lysken Dirks, Betty Stam, and other martyred reformation women or missionaries.

Ten Girls Who Changed the World includes the childhoods of Amy Carmichael, Corrie Ten Boom, and Gladys Aylward.

Ten Girls Who Made a Difference highlights the early days of some of the wives and mothers of great men, like Katherine Luther, Sabina Wurmbrand, and Susanna Wesley.

Ten Girls Who Made History recounts the youth of such notables as Elisabeth Elliot, Betty Green, Lottie Moon, and more.

As with the boys' series, each book is 160 pages long and concludes each chapter with interesting facts, keynotes, and something to think about.

The stories are ok... but March 13, 2015
Reviewer: April E.  
The stories are ok... but don't go into much detail. My daughter read them quickly but didn't enjoy them as much as I had hoped.

My daughter loves these... December 9, 2013
Reviewer: Claudia E.  
I bought these last Christmas for my daughter and the boy books for my son. My daughter has read almost all of them. My son has not read them all yet. Not sure why. But they do like them. I love them cause they are true stories that my kids will talk about for days to me. The reading its easy but not too easy. The stories are real and can break your heart and then lift it up again. I like them because it shows courage in the face of persecution and to never give up.

Excellent Resource for Young Girls! October 3, 2011
Reviewer: Kristy Howard from TX, United States  
I am using the "Ten Girls" book series in our homeschooling curriclum this year.  Since both our school age children are daughters, these books for a perfect fit for our family!

I noted that most of the reviews mention how "basic" the stories are... This is what makes these books so wonderful for young children!  Instead of being bogged down with lengthy dialogue and rote detail, the stories are fresh, concise, and easy to understand.

Each of the stories include "extra" information on the time period or person at the end of the chapter.  There is also a section of simple questions on each character at the end of the book, which is great if you're using the books as a homeschooling supplement.

The selection of "girls" featured in the stories is superb.  I'm extremely pleased with these books.

Excellent Books! November 8, 2010
Reviewer: Misty Marr from Buckeye, AZ United States  
The Ten Girls 4-Book Series series is a great way to introduce your children to many women who served the Lord.  There is a wide variety of women from different eras, countries and situations. These stories will give you a good understanding if who they were and what they did for the Lord.  These stories will also help you determine who you would like to study in more depth.

Good Introduction to Biographies October 26, 2010
Reviewer: Kirsten Kilcup from Tacoma, WA United States  
We own the "Made a Difference" book, and I am generally pleased with it.  These short story-style biographies provide a good introduction and made us search out more in-depth information.  The only things I don't like are, admittedly, rather trivial and are related more to editing (there's never a period after Mr. or Mrs.--drives me nuts!) and the fact that they are very basic.  I think the basic part can be good, in that it drives you to further research, but I think you should know that you'll be left wanting more details!  Generally, though, a delightful way to learn about historical figures as well as good character.
