I want to be as strong and brave as these ladies:
The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything
Scary pants and shirts and shoes try to frighten her,
but this little old lady isn't afraid.
Julie of the Wolves
Julie escapes from a cruel husband, gets lost in the wilderness,
and survives by befriending a pack of wolves.
Island of the Blue Dolphins
A twelve-year-old girl is alone on an island
for eighteen years. Now that's strong and brave.
Eleanor, Quiet No More
Eleanor, strong and brave Eleanor, who said,
"We gain strength and courage and confidence by each experience
in which we really stop and look fear in the face....We must do that
which we think we cannot."
Parvana is a young girl who sets off, alone,
across war-torn Afghanistan to find her family.
Very brave. And strong.
Reading Lolita in Tehran
How brave and strong Azar Nafisi was to organize and lead
a book club for women in Tehran!
A Thousand Splendid Suns
Two strong and brave women in Afghanistan.
Strong, brave Julia Child remakes her life.
The Hunger Games
What kind of blogger would I be if I left off strong, brave Katniss?
What book heroines do you admire for their strength and bravery?
