Being a girl is difficult. And what makes it easier is having resources. Resources can be a friend to talk to, a song to sing along to that you relate to, or even reading a book. We came up with a list of 4 books that are our favorite for growing girls (ages 8+).
This book is recommended for girls ages 8 and up. It highlights on the changes every girl goes through during this stage of life (hygiene, the need to stay hydrated, and physical activity). It keeps these potentially awkward discussions lighthearted and easier to approach after reading this book.
This second edition book was designed for girls ages 10 and up to read and learn about further physical and emotional changes. It brings up topics that most girls face during this stage of life.
3. Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls (vol. 1 & 2)
These books are great because they are jam-packed with biographies of real women of history. Some great names are: Amelia Earhart, Serena Williams, and Elizabeth I.
4. Who Was... book series
Our favorites in this book series are: Dolly Parton, Gloria Steinem, Anne Frank. There is also one about Maya Angelou, but we recommend parental guidance, especially for girls under 13. It is a little graphic.
