Women’s History Month
March is Women’s History Month, what a great time for us to celebrate the awesomeness of girls! As a parent or teacher, it is important to remember that it is not necessary to call out to the boys in your life that “hey we’re about to read about girls” as these books and characters stand on their own for all to enjoy. There are so many iconic girls in classic children’s literature, including Nancy Drew, Ramona Quimby, Harriet the Spy and Ms. Frizzle, just to name a few.
Below are a few of what are sure to be new classics in children’s literature, several of which are featured in the current BOOK IT! Give Me 20 Challenge which is centered on the theme “Inspiring and Empowering Women”.
