This is a wonderful book to help inspire any little girl in your life. Every page is a celebration of girls and all of the unique ways that we can express ourselves and show our personalities. I was especially enamored with Ali Pye’s charming, bright and silly illustrations of a diverse group of girls just being themselves and having so much fun doing so, as evidenced on the cover illustration.
Take-away message: It’s in the title, “Girls can do anything!” This book shatters gender norms on just about every page, as girls are depicted as “scruffy and muddy,” as being able to wear board shorts or dresses, or as construction workers and airline pilots. It’s a must-have for any little girl’s library.
