What My Ten Year Old Daughter Read Over Summer Vacation


Girls Inc. Presents: You're Amazing! A No-Pressure Guide to Being Your Best Self .
by Claire Mykso-Adams
For ages 9-12
What's an amazing girl like? She asks questions because she knows it's okay not to know the "right" answer. She tries new things because she knows the power of learning from mistakes. She knows how to take pride in her accomplishments, no matter how big or small.
Inspired by - The Supergirl Dilemma report, in which more than 1,000 girls shared their stories of feeling pressure to be perfect, You're Amazing! is a girl's guide to giving up the quest to be "super" and to start celebrating what makes her amazing. Packed with Girls Inc. activities, quizzes, insight from girls and older teens, and advice from women role models, the book gives girls the tools and tips to feel good about who they are. You're Amazing! addresses the issues challenging girls today—from family to school to crushes to the future—and encourages girls to find the inner voice that makes them unique, special, and above all, amazing.
