Girl Power! I think every girl needs to read this children’s book. What an uplifting and wonderful novel celebrating us females! I can’t begin to express how enlightening and empowering this novel is. I am definitely going to be buying a few copies of this novel and sharing them. This novel is basically made up of an assortment of two-page spread entries which begin with “Dear Girl,” and tell the female reader that they are okay, they are special, they are unique and loved. My heart was bursting after my first reading. I immediately had to reread it as it hit on so many different strings that girls address as they are growing up, that now, on my second time through, I stopped and really enjoyed each and every page of the novel. Girls, it’s okay to cry, it’s okay to be alone, it’s okay to ask all kinds of questions, to say no and it’s okay to dress different. I loved the illustration of the girl; her simple style went well with the novel. I enjoyed the illustrations and I liked how they didn’t overtake the novel’s objective. I really liked the pages that said, “Dear Girl, You won’t be invited to every single party on the planet. (Which is really okay- can you image how exhausting that would be?).” This page hit home with me, this page covers many topics that individuals face with growing up. I can’t tell you how many times as a substitute teacher I have had to deal with issues of girls not being accepted by their peers. It hurts to see this happen but like the other pages in this novel, it tells girls that it is okay. This novel tells girls that it is also okay to find people that are different, people that are not like them. As a parent, these pages speak volumes. This is a wonderful, fantastic children’s book! I highly recommend checking it out and perhaps buying a few copies: one for your own child, one for your teacher or giving one away as we all know, we should empower others.
We love this book. We got it for all of the young girls in our lives. VERY empowering!!
