Book Club: Women’s Month

Each March marks the beginning of Women’s Month – a time dedicated to highlighting and celebrating the achievements of women throughout the centuries. This month we decided to compile a list of books according to age that you can read with your kids to explore this topic. Join us for our reading challenge to read at least one of these books this month!

Ages 2-5: Ambitious Girl 

Ambitious Girl, Meena Harris’ latest book and a New York Times bestseller, follows the story of a young girl and her journey of discovery after seeing a woman on TV labeled as “too assertive” and “too ambitious”. This book is a great, inspirational read to get your children thinking about gender stereotypes in an approachable and age-friendly format.

Ages 9-11: Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History 

Vashti Harrison’s book features 18 stories of trailblazing black women in American history.

Ages 12+: Because I Was a Girl: True Stories for Girls of All Ages 

The pre-teen category for books can be difficult as every child progresses differently and has evolving tastes in reading.

What’s great about this format is that it features many stories so there are sure to be some that resonate and have a lasting impact.
