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)

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.
