Synopses & Reviews
In the 1990s, child psychologist Sylvia Rimm and her daughters—Sara, a research psychologist, and Ilonna, a pediatric oncology researcher—surveyed more than 1,000 satisfied, successful women. Their goal was to “identify the essential childhood elements that encouraged these women to achieve fulfilling careers” so other parents could give their daughters the same advantages. Their results and advice were published in See Jane Win®
, which became a New York Times
and Wall Street Journal
See Jane Win® teaches parents how to help their daughters. See Jane Win® for Girls teaches daughters how to help themselves. Dr. Rimm gives girls the “I Can” tips and tools they need to be confident, capable, eager to learn, and ready to lead.
“This whole book is written with touching sensitivity and tact, yet is very direct and very specific. It speaks with a voice of experience without moralizing. I would buy a dozen and hand them out to every young girl I know.”—Gifted Education Communicator
“Girls wishing to build their self-esteem will enjoy this book, and its suggestions.”—Library Media Connection
“Readers looking for guidance and direction will respond positively to the book’s format.... A useful self-help book and practical guide to life.”—School Library Journal
