Review Quotes



"A mother-daughter team offers a love letter encouraging girls to accept and love themselves. They advise girls to be confident, to speak up, and to be curious and adaptable to anything. Sure to be a hit for mothers and daughters of all ages for its warm, supportive message."--Booklist

"The missives are generally empathetic and up-to-the-minute."
--Publishers Weekly

"Abundantly necessary. Holly Hatam's simple, stark style and limited palette reflect the essential and basic nature of equality, conveying that Dear Girl can be any girl. Dear Girl ends with love. Scary times call for extra love."--New York Times Book Review

★ "This picture book should have a permanent place on every empowering book display your library puts up. A must purchase. Each missive reminds readers to be herself, be smart, be adventurous, sometimes cry, and always listen to your instincts. The mother-daughter connection is always loving and personal."--School Library Journal (starred review)

I stumbled on this book by accident and I’m so glad I did!! I just watched a read aloud of it on YouTube and I’m definitely buying it! My little girl is turning 4 next month and this is perfect. I’m hoping if I can start instilling these exact lessons in her now she will never forget them. In this crazy world we live in we need books like this for our girls. I’m so excited for this book!! I think it might be my new favorite to read to my little girl.

A collection of affirmative phrases not a story

This book is more like a mantra and affirmative phrases collection and not really a story. If you're looking for a book with a plot, this does not have one. Overall, it's not a book I expect a little girl will read over and over since it doesn't tell a story. While the overall message is good, I was looking for something that would be a memorable reading experience for a child. Lots of positive reviews on this item but none mentioned the content so it was disappointing to read. I would not buy this book for the listed sticker price at all

Very cute book! I got this for my 6 year old niece for a gift and she loved it. The sentences are pretty simple/some what if a pattern to the words that it is good for her reading skills as well. The book has fun colors and images that catch a young readers eyes and make it fun as well!

The book was annoying. Not fun to read to my daughter. I’ll teach her the thoughts in the book but I want to read to her something fun.
