Book Shelf

Welcome to our book shelf where we share books, videos, and stories by and for girls. Have a story you want to share? We’d love to feature it here!

The Gutsy Girl by Caroline Paul

In The Gutsy Girl, the author shares her greatest escapades as well as those of other girls and women from throughout history, and offers engaging activities such as confidence-building stances, creating a compass, positive self-talk, and using crickets to estimate outside temperatures. Each section includes a place for girls to “journal” their adventures, thus encouraging a new generation to develop a zest for challenges and a healthy relationship to risk.

The Youngest Marcher by Cynthia Levinson

Nine-year-old Audrey Faye Hendricks intended to go places and do things like anybody else. She was confident and bold and brave as can be, and hers is the remarkable and inspiring story of one child’s role in the Civil Rights Movement.
