Inspirational Children’s Books about Women for Girls
Do you have a daughter? I do and I decided to compile a list of books that can help inspire her. The books below range from children’s stories with fictional characters to children’s books about real women. I hope that this list of children’s books about women might help inspire your daughter to be the best she can be and see that women can do anything!
Isabella: Girl in Charge by Jennifer Fosberry
This books help shine a spotlight on history making female politicians. I love that is shows examples of real life women politicians in a fun way but also has a detailed timeline of the actual history of women in politics at the end. (Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of Isabella: Girl in Charge, all opinions are my own)
DC Superheroes: My First Book of Girl Power by Julie Merberg
This book is a celebration of girl power featuring DC characters.
The Most Magnificent Thing by Ashley Spires
A great STEM related book that portrays a girl with a great idea – she tries to make it and fails – she quits but realizes with some encouragement that she must keep going.
Violet the Pilot by Steve Breen
Violet is a gifted child but frequently teased at school. In a classic underdog story Violet shows girls that is ok to follow your dreams.
The Story of Rosa Parks by Patricia A. Pingry
This story introduces children to the civil rights movement and Rosa Parks.
Amelia Earhart (Little People, Big Dreams) by Ma Isabel Sanchez Vegara
The book follows Amelia Earhart and shows how she overcame prejudice with her strong will and perseverance.
I am Jane Goodall (Ordinary People Change the World) by Brad Meltzer
This book features a young Jane Goodall telling her story in first person. The story is easy to read and keeps children interested.
Heroes for my Daughter by Brad Meltzer
A collection of sixty people that are ordinary people that achieved the extraordinary as the cover states. A great book to look at together and learn from.
I hope you enjoyed taking a look through this list and found at least one book to inspire your daughter. I find it so important to let our daughters know that they can be and do anything they set their minds too.
