5 Books for Strong Girls

5 Books for Strong Girls

FEBRUARY 6TH, 2020

It’s Children's Authors & Illustrators Week, so we thought we’d share some of our favorite books with you! We love reading books with girls because it’s an opportunity to bond, learn about something new, and share our own thoughts and perspectives with them.

All of these books are fun and entertaining, but also get at something deeper, with true stories of amazing women, adventurous or unique girl characters, stereotype-bending formats, etc. We like to request books like these from our local library, but you can also pick them up online or from a bookstore.

This inspiring and creatively told biography of the film pioneer Alice Guy-Blaché reads like fiction. The story is captivating, dramatic and true. Also, reading this book creates a great opportunity to talk about how women’s roles have changed over time.

This delightful book explores a girl’s commitment to creativity and art. Made up of both photos and illustrations, the book is beautiful and fun to read. We like the main character’s commitment to her values and interests.

We LOVED this one! Girl Running is the story of Bobbi Gibb, the first female to run the Boston Marathon. Bobbi discovered her love of running at a time when women weren't allowed to run. In fact, running shoes for girls/women didn't even exist! This book is a great jumping off point for conversations about how things used to be for girls and women, how they are now, and your vision for the future.

This is the sixth book of the Zoey and Sassafras series, but you don't have to have read them all to appreciate it. Zoey feels her house shake, but it turns out it wasn't an earthquake—it was a unicorn-quake! The story is fun and the book is easy to read. We love that it has a female main character and centers on a problem that Zoey has to use science to solve. Great for girls in grades 2-5 (younger if you're reading it out loud).

This book is clever and refreshingly different than most books for girls. It takes a stereotypically male approach to storytelling (lots of !!! and action) and flips it on its head by making the main character a princess and incorporating lots of fairy tales. Fun and unexpected.

We hope you enjoy these selections! 😃
