There has never been a better time in history to be female. Parents are doing a great job raising strong, capable young women, but it still takes a village to raise any child. And in lieu of a village, books can help. Inspiring stories and strong female role models can help shape, nurture, and inspire girls to be the best, strongest and smartest versions of themselves.

We’ve put together a great list of books that celebrate girls and all their sporty, brave, magical, and scientific qualities and attributes! There are empowering reads, characters who are smart and funny, reads that inspire the sportswoman in all girls, a call to arms… and one incredible character who embraces her differences. There are countless inspiring stories to share with the young girls in our lives, but the books listed below really are special. Read one or read them all, and support our future leaders. Girls really can rule the world.
