March 15th, 2012 by Nancy
I don’t really have a favorite month, but I like March. It’s a solid month with a strong name… Soldiers march, ants march, protesters march… and so did women, when they were fighting for equality! That’s why MARCH is the perfect month to honor Women’s History Month!
And what better way to celebrate than by reading some of these awesome Kick-Butt Girl Power books? My personal fave is The Witch of Blackbird Pond, which (haha, which/witch!) Kidsmomo power user Haha Me liked too.
And if you’re up for some laughs, check out Karen’s “interpretation” of ogre-speak from Ella Enchanted (…not that my ogre-like drawing skills are anything to brag about):
So maybe we’re not so great at speaking ogre, but we can certainly blab on and on about books! Check out our “You Go, Girl!” podcast (during which, sadly, “You Go, Girl!” was never actually cheesily said out loud):
Overwhelmed by too much Karen and Nancy? Well, check out these girl-power books picks from Kidsmomo visitors just like you:
- Behind the Gates (Tomorrow Girls series #1) by Eva Gray, reviewed by Joslyn, Age 11
- Breakaway by Andrea Montalbano reviewed by Megan, Age 11
- The Island of Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell, reviewed by Emma, Age 11
- Brand-New Emily by Ginger Rue, reviewed by Alexis, Age 12
So what are you waiting for? March on over to the bookstore, the library, or right over to your bookshelf, and get going!
Sometimes when Nancy feels frightened, she thinks of how Karana (the main character in The Island of Blue Dolphins) survived all by herself on an island for years… and stops being frightened.
