What's in a Book?

Bolstering young girl’s self esteem is one of the most important aspects of her upbringing. Parents can’t shield their daughters every moment of the day, but they can do their best to build them up in the time they spend together. This includes routines to let them know they are valuable, such as reading with them every night. Here are three books we love that help grow a little girl’s confidence while improving their reading skills and deepening your relationship.

1. Happy Hair by Mechal Renee Roe: Happy Hair promotes healthy and positive imagery by focusing on all of our different shades and types of hair that are both fun and stylish. It celebrates diversity and the individual girl by highlighting that we are all unique in our own way.
    2. Chrysanthemum Paperback by Kevin Henkes: This book is about a girl named Chrysanthemum, named after her grandmother. Chrysanthemum was proud of her name until she began getting mocked at school. The story is about her journey to finding confidence in her name again.

      3. The Care and Keeping of You: The Body Book for Younger Girls by Valorie Lee Schaefer: Good hygiene and positive body   image are always helpful in solidifying self-esteem. They are also positive life skills. The Care and Keeping of You features tips and facts about a young girl’s changing body. It emphasizes how girls should be proud of who they are during every season. We love the American Girl book collection.
