I’m a girl mom. And coming up with the title for this post was important and I wanted to get it right. I really did. But when it came down to it, I am raising two girls. My job is to figure out how I can be the best mom I can be, while making sure I have the tools to teach my girls how to be great. These books are 100% great for boys too. I just might not have the same perspective as a mom of boys would. Until all genders are treated equally, I have to figure out a way to empower my girls. So here are 10 empowering books for girls of all ages.
10 Empowering Books for Girls
- Raise Your Hand by Alice Paul Tapper
- What Do You Do With An Idea? by Kobi Yamada
- She Persisted Around the World by Chelsea Clinton
- Players in Pigtails by Shana Corey
- I Dissent by Debbie Levy
- It Takes A Village by Hillary Rodham Clinton
- Tomorrow I’ll be Brave by Jessica Hische
- Dear Girl by Amy Rosenthal and Paris Rosenthal
- Malala’s Magic Pen by Malala Yousafzai
- She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton
There are so many great books, but these books have been well received by our girls who are in the first and fourth grade. Right now their favorite book is the “Raise Your Hand” book. It was written by a fellow Girl Scout so they can see the connection between empowerment and making something they believe become a reality.
On the weekends, we spend time at the library or at the newish Amazon Bookstore when we’re in the area. So finding new books is never hard to do. I’m so glad our girls are finally at an age where they’re now reading to us, and asking really important questions. Seeing them develop into wise, kind human beings is all I can ask for as a parent.
