My Mothers' Daughter

Doris Orgel. Roaring Brook Press, $17.95 (128pp) ISBN 978-0-7613-1693-0

Historically minded readers have plenty of choices, too. Working in the same vein as in her We Goddesses: Athena, Aphrodite, Hera, Doris Orgel brings an imaginative, feminist slant to Greek mythology in My Mother's Daughter: Four Greek Goddesses Speak, illus. by Peter Malone. Here she finds an approach virtually guaranteed to interest girls-she gives voice to mother-daughter pairs, Leto and Artemis, Demeter and Persephone, allowing each speaker to offer her own perspective on shared experiences.
