I absolutely love this book for my daughter and nieces! It’s just what every little girl needs to be hearing! There is such diverse representation as well which is really important!

O my! This was such an empowering read. Even as an adult I was thinking ‘yes….go girls!’ As a teacher of a STEM subject, I often come up against the stereotypical scientist being male and I have spent quite a bit of time trying to break that notion. I love that the book also showcases diversity and that nothing should hold you back. I loved the range of activities showcased, the illustrations were great and the message was very clear.

This book was so beautiful to read! In addition to being beautifully illustrated, it conveys an empowering message to little girls about how they can achieve whatever they set their minds to. It emphasizes how past girls helped pave the way to where we are today, the importance of following your dreams, and ultimately how you can transform the world through your creative efforts. It was wonderful to see girls from different cultures and backgrounds included as well.

Thank you NetGalley and Zonderkidz™ for the advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me to read and review this book before publication.

I’m not going to lie, it was difficult keeping myself from shouting while reading this book. Silently, I kept chanting “Yes yes yes yes” over and over again. The imagery, the honesty, and the diversity work SO well together. I thought this was going to be another example of female leaders around the world, past and present, and it surprised and thrilled me to find that it was not. I love seeing those leader books, because everyone should know their names and accomplishments. But we’ve had a number of those and after the 8th one, I’m starting to feel the redundancy.

This book is about possibilities, the possibilities found in all of us as we grow. Unfortunately, girls come up against some stupid obstacles that boys don’t have to worry about, just because of their sex and gender. This book is about rising above adversity; seeking equality and equity between the sexes and races; learning about what’s out there and believing that anything is really possible.

This is the kind of book that everyone should read, not just girls and women. Boys and men not only deserve to hear this too, but they need to be educated on male privilege, sexism, and inequality, as well as how they can help break the cycle.

When is this book coming out? I need it yesterday, please.

A lovely poem to inspire girls from all over the world to take on the future by being anything the want to become. The book is really beautifully illustrated, and children will love admiring each page and seeing themselves represented thanks to the great diversity of girls included.
