She Believed She Could
One book and one character can show a little girl that she's the hero of her own story. Tim and Aurelia Sanders say, why not inspire girls with 100 characters? The self-proclaimed book nerds-turned-artists created this visual guide to inspire their young daughter. They scoured hundreds of classic and contemporary young adult books and pulled the bold, bright characters that inspired them the most. Think: Poni from Lost Girl Found, and Stella from Stella by Starlight. To capture their stories and illustrations, the couple did extensive research and consulted the children and librarians who knew the characters best. We couldn't be more excited by the result (we're book nerds, too), and think it makes an inspirational gift for young girls everywhere. Made in Seattle, Washington.
