Book of the Month: Girls Can Do Anything


“I love this book. It's beautifully put together, with articles about hundreds of women that are detailed yet the perfect bite-size length for kids and adults alike… My daughter has had it for months and I still catch her reading a few articles at random before bed all the time. It's a great book to just leaf through and learn a little history, and in my daughter's case, maybe pick up some inspiration as well.”

—   Amazon review

In honour of International Women’s Day on March 8th, our book of the month for March 2018 is Girls Can Do Anything by Caitlyn Doyle, with illustrations by Chuck Gonzales.

Girls Can Do Anything is a collection of mini biographies of over 200 incredible women from history. Read about groundbreaking scientists and scholars; world-leading politicians and activists; legendary athletes; talented writers, musicians, and artists; and more.

Rediscover the legacies of women forgotten by history such as Murasaki Shikibu, writer of the first novel, Arawelo, ruler of Ancient Somalia, and Valentina Tereshkova, expert skydiver and the first civilian in space.

This colourfully illustrated collection is a thoughtful reminder that, in the words of the author, “for every woman who has chipped away at the glass ceiling of business, or outperformed every other runner on the track, there are still millions of others who never even make it to the starting line.”

Girls Can Do Anything celebrates women's stories and achievements and is an empowering book that will inspire girls and boys everywhere to dream big and stand up for what they believe. That's the power of inspiring stories!
