How many times do we tell girls that they are enough? There is always something better to look forward to, something more that they can do and be. While that may serve as a motivation to achieve great things, it is also necessary for young girls and women alike to assert themselves as they are. That is exactly what Kara Oliver does in her book, You Go, Girl: A Letter to Young Queens, a much-needed letter, I would say. With an abundance of positive affirmations, Kara uses poetic prose to motivate young girls toward loving themselves. You Go, Girl radiates positivity with its words, coloring activity, and a personalized declaration. It can serve as a daily reminder to young girls to be their best and love themselves for it.

As a global society and culture, we expect too much of women. We believe that they are meant to be superhuman. This conditioning starts at a noticeably young age, and girls do not even realize that it is happening. Inspiration and motivation to achieve great things is a good thing; so is acceptance, assertion, and affirmation of their identity and being. Kara Oliver does a brilliant job of expressing these affirmations in her simple and short book, You Go, Girl: A Letter to Young Queens. With catchy poetic prose and stunning illustrations, Kara makes the case to lift the spirits of young girls and women. I loved that both simplicity and a profound message are so beautifully blended in this short and sweet book. I highly recommend it to young girls and women.
