BLACK GIRLS CAN: AN EMPOWERING STORY OF YESTERDAYS AND TODAYS parallels ten courageous Black women with today's little girl, demonstrating how the courageous actions of yesterdays can help today's young girls shine. REVIEWS: “Black Girls Can is a beautifully illustrated book that educates and inspires young girls to dream big. A much needed collection of mini-affirmations to help our girls see that there are unlimited possibilities for what they can achieve.” ~Alonda Williams, mom of two and author of Penny and Magic Puffballs “With this powerful little book, Garlinghouse re-affirms a truth all young girls should hear; yes, they can. The bold, striking artwork by Ardvidson consists of side by side pictures of historic African American women and contemporary young girls at play, and simply reinforces the timeless message." ~Alison Donnelly, children’s librarian and mother of one daughter ”This lovely book teaches little girls stories about real women who have created positive change in their communities and the world. Reading it together is a great conversation starter to inspire and motivate your daughter.” ~Arnica Rowan, mom of two girls and owner of Africa Sleeps "Black Girls Can introduces history makers in a way that makes them relatable while affirming the talents of our daughters." ~ Kelly Greenawalt, mother of four, and author of Princess Truly and The Hungry Bunny Problem and I Am Truly “Black Girls Can delivers a message that young black girls need to hear. The book empowers and educates its readers, demonstrating that there are no barriers too difficult to overcome while providing examples of leaders that have paved the way." ~Blake Washington, author of the children’s book Hooray for Helium “Black Girls Can is a long overdue representation and organized historical account of ten courageous and powerful African American women. The beautiful, age appropriate illustrations, bring these remarkable women to life so they can continue to inspire young girls of all races.” -Cindy Jeffries Akeman, mother of two, and Speech-Language Pathologist
