Today is August 9th, which means a brand-new school year is right around the corner. What better way to celebrate that than with National Book Lover's Day? We have some book recommendations for this month that will get your young queens fired up, excited and inspired over the next nine months.
1. Dream Big, Little One by Vashti Harrison
2. Who Will You Be? by Andrea Pippins
3. Mae Among the Stars by Roda Ahmed, illustrated by Stasia Burrington
Another book about following your dreams even when others don't believe in you. Mae wanted to go to space, and she was discouraged when adults around her told her to 'come back to Earth'. Let Mae teach your girls to not give up; anything is possible if you put your mind to it.
And of course, we can't forget Beautiful Curly Me, written by Zoe Oli. Written by a young girl to empower other young girls, there's no better book to get their dreams and ambitions flowing and to inspire them to love who they are inside and out.
