5 Books to Empower the Future Girl-Boss
I was very lucky growing up that I had very strong women to look up to. They taught me that I can do anything that I put my mind to and be tenacious for what you want. Now, as a mother, it is my turn to pass on that message. I want my daughter to be tough, resilient, and work hard to change the world! Here are 5 books that will help empower the future girl-boss!
According to the National Girls Collaborative Project, Women make up half of the total U.S. college-educated workforce, but only 29% of the science and engineering workforce. Very few STEM books are geared toward girls, that is why I love this book. In fact, this is just one of a series of books that include female characters in STEM-related fields. It is a fun and empowering read for your future engineer!
This is an adorable little book to teach girls (and boys!) about ten influential women who changed history. Geared towards kids aged 3-5, it is colorful and simple to read. Women that are featured include Rosa Parks, Florence Nightingale, and Coco Chanel. What I love about this book is it includes women from a variety of backgrounds- fashion, athletics, civil rights, etc. It isn’t available until December 12, 2017, but you can pre-order it today on Amazon.
Geared towards kids aged preschool-3rd grade, this book introduces readers to thirteen inspirational women who never took no for an answer and persisted in order to shape history. This book teaches young women to be tenacious and stand up for what they believe in. This is a beautifully illustrated and empowering read for any future girl-boss. Empower your daughter by reading and discussing the women highlighted in the book.
We have several of the 5-Minute Story books and this is hands down my favorite. This book includes ten stories that can be read aloud in five minutes flat, perfect for bedtime! All of the stories center around fearless, fun, determined daring, kind, and confident young girls. A great way to end the day by empowering your little girl.
This is just the sweetest book. Molly Lou Lemon is short and clumsy, has buck teeth, and has a funny sounding voice. She moves to a new school and is confronted by a school bully. Molly Lou sets forth with confidence, determination, and self-assurance that every little girl can benefit from having. It’s a great read with a wonderful message. It’s a must-read to empower your daughter and help her improve her self-confidence.
