A Girl’s Guide to Life

By Michelle Herman

A Girl’s Guide to Life is a timeless book of warm and sensible advice for young girls, originally written by a mother for her own eight-year-old daughter. From compassion and empathy through self-expression and creativity, from thoughtfulness and helpfulness and good deeds through gratitude and heartfelt apology, from the incomparable joys of friendship to the importance of learning how and when to say no, this little book offers wise counsel that will be of use for many years to come.

“A GIRL'S GUIDE TO LIFE is exactly that--a delightful guide filled with wisdom and warmth for all ages. It's about saying yes and saying no and everything in between, giving respect and expecting it too--practical proverbs in a fun-to-read package.”
Dandi Daley Mackall, author of The Secrets of Tree Taylor and My Boyfriend’s Dog
