A day characterized by BBQs, fireworks, and time with friends and family, we remember our nation's founders and the men who shaped our country and we bring up names like George Washington, Paul Revere, and Thomas Jefferson. But, what about names like Sybil Ludington, Deborah Sampson, or Phillis Wheatley? Women contributed mightily to the path to freedom, and not just on the home front; they worked as spies, alerted Continental troops, placed their name on copies of the Declaration of Independence, and fought for freedom from slavery.Read More
I just love to cook. It's one of my greatest passions. I get giddy just thinking about it. I love the whole process -- the deciding what to make and what needs to be gathered in order to make it, the preparation and when finished, getting to enjoy it myself or giving it away so others can enjoy it, too. It really does delight the soul!Read More
If you can dream it, you can be it. That's the message behind the awesome new children's book, RAD Girl Revolution, now on Kickstarter!
RAD stands for Rise Above Doubt and Reach Any Dream. The book will feature 30 inspiring storybook-style photos of real little girls in fields typically under-represented by women, along with a rhyming verse describing each career. The book includes occupations such as Scientist, Judge, Artist, Astronaut, Doctor, Pilot, Journalist, Director, Chef, Author, CEO, Engineer, Paleontologist, President, and many more.
Rad Girl Revolution will be a hardcover (10x8") children's book for kids ages 3-7 that empowers young girls and encourages gender equal mindsets in young boys. There are many empowering children's books that are suited for girls 7 and up, but RAD Girl Revolution will appeal to a younger audience. Gender stereotypes are set in children as early as age 6, so it is crucial to expose them to empowering books and reach them during the critical developmental ages of 3-7 years old.
We at GIRLS CAN! CRATE are so excited to partner with RAD Girl Revolution and the fantastic Princess Awesome to bring you a giveaway that honors little girls' BIG dreams!
