Go Girl! Help Your Daughter Be Healthy, Confident and Successful by Playing Sports

Storm, Hannah. Go Girl! Help Your Daughter Be Healthy, Confident and Successful by Playing Sports. Sourcebooks, Inc. May, 2002. 304 pp. Paper, $16.95, ISBN 1-57071-928-4; Hardcover, $24.95, ISBN 1-57071-972-1.

Storm’s book covers general aspects of physical fitness for girls from babyhood through high school; good sportsmanship, positive reinforcement of athleticism, nutrition, etc. are covered. Storm’s safe-and-sound approach is a bit bland and may lead readers to wonder why it is limited to girls; many of these issues are important and applicable to boys and are covered in books such as Good Sports : The Concerned Parent’s Guide to Competitive Youth Sports (LJ 4/1/93), now in a second edition (Sports Publishing, Inc., 1998). Storm includes a helpful chapter entitled “Sports 101” which introduces the basics of the most common sports. Resources, notes and index not seen by LJ. Consider Storm’s book for collections that don’t already have Sports Her Way: Motivating Girls to Start and Stay With Sports (Simon & Schuster, 2000).
