Title: Dear Girl,Beautiful book for mothers and daughters dear girl

Authors: Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Paris Rosenthal

Target: Kindergarten-Grade 3

Series: No

What this book is about:

This book is a love letter to every little girl reminding them to be themselves, to be brave and to be accepting. Hey, sometimes they will like pink and sparkly and other times mud puddles will be their thing. Listing to their instincts is good, acting bored is boring and not being invited to every single party is really ok. But most of all, they are cherished.

Why I love this book:

  • Amy Krouse Rosenthal is one of my very favorite kid authors. She died of cancer last year, way too young. This collaboration with her daughter is as delightful and whimsical as all her books, with little touches of humor throughout. It is a lovely legacy for all the beautiful books she has produced and a love letter between a mom and daughter
  • The illustrations by Holly Hatam are wonderful. The simplicity of the artwork lets the words shine through while providing a fanciful depiction of believing in yourself.

Who this book is for:

This is a wonderful book for mother and daughter to share. If my daughter were younger I think I might get teary-eyed reading it to her, but I would appreciate the part where it encourages her to make her bed!

Final thoughts:

Let’s continue to celebrate the smart, confident girls so they will grow up to be resilient and strong.
