Little girls are made of sugar and spice and all that’s nice. But empowered, enlightened and energized little girls are made up of so much more! Add a dash of daring, a sprinkle of sassiness, a pinch of pride, and a cup of creativity, and you have the recipe for the girl of the 21st century! The new Girls Know How book series embodies all that is feminine and fantastic, while pushing them to drive themselves and their futures. This brilliant series inspires kids to explore and pursue the career of their dreams through engaging characters and amazing storylines!
The author, Ellen Langas, is a passionate youth career education advocate that brought her love of writing into the mix to create this incredible series. It targets girls ages 7-12, so the emphasis is on fun reading with characters girls can relate to easily. These chapter books are fictional, however, they introduce characters that are based on real-life successful role models. You can actually read about those real-life empowered women and kids at Girls Know How!
There are four books in the series as of now that target different careers:
- Journalism: Will Stephanie Get The Story?
- Construction: Raising The Roof
- Teaching: Smart Alex
- Science: Super Science Girls!
Beyond the really fun reading in the books (they totally brought me back to my childhood days and love of reading when I was a kid!), Ellen goes even further with her passion. Online at Girls Know How, she offers free activities and study guides for parents, teachers, librarians and Girl Scout leaders love! Anyone that helps to impact and influence your little girls’ lives can use these free resources! My favorite is the Career Exploration Worksheet – I would have LOVED to think about and fill this out when I was a little one!
