Another book club smashing success! 📚🌟
Today’s pick was Early Sunday Morning by @denenemillnerbooks and @vanessabrantleynewton about a beautiful girl who conquers her fear of singing in front of the church thanks to the love and support of her mom and dad.
💒
We love the page where June gets her hair done by her mama to get dolled up for her big day. Such a wonderful #ownvoices story.
See the full list of #37books on our wishlist. (Link in bio.)

#TBT to a more simple moment in my life.
I am feeling like a whirlwind right now and am actively telling myself no.
I look at a picture like this where we literally were eating in the middle of the Sahara desert.
In a makeshift tent.
Our food cooked outside and eaten with our bare hands.
Listening to stories about each other‘s families, different cultures and religions, while the kids entertained us with silly dances and songs. ✨✨✨
“And day by day, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, ‘This is important! And this is important! And this is important! And you need to worry about this! And this! And this!’ And each day it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, “No. This is what’s important.” —Iain Thomas

Shout out to @Barbie featuring real girls who lead with kindness and empathy. 👧🏾🌟
Very proud of my little one getting to be featured today for taking action for #girlseducation in her community and in Ghana with @astronautstarbright.

Havana Chapman-Edwards (@thetinydiplomat), age 7, believes that while one girl is powerful, a movement of girls is unstoppable! In the past year, not only has she founded a national book club, she has also helped raise $30,000 to provide books and school supplies to girls in Accra, Ghana. 💪📚 Tell us about a girl in your community who inspires you! #YouCanBeAnything #Barbie

In the award-winning film, Hidden Figures, we learned the real-life story of three young Black women were instrumental in changing the course of space travel in the United States. But as we dig deeper, there are more “hidden figures” everywhere.
📚🙌🏽
Just look at retired engineer, Raye Montague, who single-handedly changed the way U.S. Navy ships are made and used.
⚓️📚
Montague is credited with the rough draft of the first U.S. Naval ship design using a computer (FFG-7 Class: 1971) which revolutionized naval ship design. She became the first female Program Manager of Ships in the United Sates Navy.
🇺🇸👧🏾💪🏾
A Girl With A Mind for Math: The Story of Raye Montague is a brilliant relatable non-fiction that will appeal to children with high interest images, rhyming text, and a fun time line with fun facts, etc.
#sponsored
Sadly, Raye Montague passed away this week, however, this new book from @funathomewithkids and @theinnovationpress is a perfect way to celebrate Raye's remarkable life of service to her country and #blackexcellence period. 📚✨
Purchase the book with the link in bio.
📚✨
P.s. I am no longer putting the Amazon link, but the @Indiebound link like I do on my website. If Indiebound is new to you, it is the same process as Amazon, but you are buying the book from your local bookstore which means you #supportsmallbusinesses in your community as well as more money goes to the actual author/publisher. Win win all around.

Today, more than 98 million adolescent girls are not in school. That’s a lot of empty desks. That’s a lot of dreams that are being cut short. That’s why today on International #DayoftheGirl, I’m proud to join @MichelleObama and the @GlobalGirlsAlliance to stand up for adolescent girls’ education, Join us—because the future of our world is only as bright as our girls. #globalgirlsalliance

✨✨✨✨
Happy International Day of the Girl! ✨✨✨✨

She let us in on her secret to life, and I for one am here for it. 🙌🏽

This is a book about doing the best you can with what you have to work with.
This is a book for everyone who's ever said "If only I had________, THEN I would be happy.
This is about rocking whatcha GOT and not focusing on what's NOT.
But sometimes it takes our inner most creative soul to remind us.”
Let’s rock what we got and let our sisters do the same!

International Day of the Girl GIVEAWAY✨
Tomorrow 10/11 is International Day of the Girl where we celebrate girls all over the world achieving, pushing boundaries, inventing, leading businesses, and slaying the patriarchy.
I have been doing a series of giveaways of amazing books celebrating sisterhood through reading!
📚👧🏾🌏
**Challenge for parents of boys: read books to boys about strong girls... always, all the time, on purpose. There is no such thing as books for girls/boys.**
📚
Today's book is LIMITLESS: 24 Remarkable American Women of Vision, Grit, and Guts by @leahtinari!
💥5 lucky people will win this book.💥
#partner
Fine artist Leah Tinari’s stunning, spellbinding portraits honor the groundbreaking achievements and indelible impact of twenty-four extraordinary American women.
These women’s dreams were without boundaries; their accomplishments limitless in their reach and lasting power.
This book is SURE to change the world of children's literature. I have never seen artwork and text combined in a book like this for children and I KNOW kids young and old are going to feel that this book makes reading "cool" again.
Tinari’s list is comprised of trailblazers, whose vision, grit, and guts paved the way not only for the generations to come, but for Tinari’s own artistic journey.
These women include Louisa May Alcott, Rachel Carson, Julia Child, Shirley Chisholm, Ellen Degeneres, Ray Eames, Eve Ensler, Carrie Fisher, Dian Fossey, Aretha Franklin, and more.
📚
Their contributions to the arts, education, science, politics, civil rights, fashion, design, technology, and sports are enduring and noteworthy.
Courage, perseverance, brilliance, and passion were the guiding, groundbreaking principles for these diverse women.
