She's All That! Reviews
I enjoyed this collection of poems beacause I felt that it put girls into a positive light. I think that it is important that girls know their self worth from a young age, and I think this collection of poems does a good job at promoting that. I enjoyed the use of different structures of poems and I think that it helped create variety. I also enjoyed that the book was split up into categories of poems, so if a girl was struggling with something in specific, they would know where to look. I think this would make a good choice for independent reading. I do not think it would be appropriae to read as a read aloud book beacause it does not focus on the boys of the class, which would not be fair to them and I feel as if many of the boys in the class would lose interest in a girls' poetry book very easily. I would reccomend it for girls who were strugling with their self image or who may be bullied. This book has encouraging poems that speak to the fact that all girls are different from one another, but that is okay and it should be celebrated. I think that this collection of poems would be best suited for girls in grades 4-6 because there are some poems that deal with more mature issues and things such as tween girl drama that I do not think younger girls would be able to connect to.
Who runs the world? Girls! This is a great collection of 70 poems that empowers girls of all ages, sizes, races and cultures. One of my favorite poems in this book is Lisa, "Lisa's father is black and her mother is white, and her skin is a cinnamon delight, her hair is dark and her eyes are light, and Lisa is Lisa, day and night..." The way the world is today it is very important that little girls in these type of situation(interracial parents or darker skinned) are represented in a positive light. All the illustrations are in outline format, there is no color but none is needed because the poems are so powerful.
Tomboys, ladies, best friends, sweethearts, daughters, adventurers--all are celebrated in this collection of over 75 poems about girls. The lines range from serious to silly, simple to contemplative, and all focus on what it means to be a girl. Black and white line drawings dot the pages, adding visual interest. This is a nice collection for the 6th-8th grade set.

She’s All That written by Belinda Hollyer is such a great piece of poetry to have in class. It is all about girls and the different issues and conflicts that girl’s all over the world go through on a daily basis. The book is split into 10 different sections that tackle all down 1 common thing. There are different situations within each book that girls from different cultures have experienced or are going to experience. A must have book in the classroom as mentioned earlier. Overall, I hope that the author will write a book about boys next. I think it is a great idea to talk about all the issues and insecurities that ladies have. However, I think that boys should have a book dedicated to themselves as well. The book overall is great and it should be in every classroom. There are some poems in the book that are easy to understand and there are some that have a hidden message behind them. All in all, it could be used as a lesson plan in the future to be used during International Women’s Day or any other event that involves the areas that this poetry book covers.
