RAD Girl Revolution + Giveaway - Little Girls, BIG Dreams!

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!

e939184530a8b9ec4d41fbe463eb5e00_original_large.jpg

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!

The home security system is one of those things that you have to wonder: who came up with it and why? This month at GIRLS CAN! CRATE we're answering those very questions. Who? Marie Van Brittan Brown. Why? She wanted to feel safe.

Audacious. It's not a dirty word.

Most words have more than one meaning. Sometimes, though, that word becomes known more for its negative meaning than its good. Audacious is one of those words. When you hear audacious what first comes to mind? Is it someone who's reckless, disregards rules? Or is it someone who takes bold risks and is daring? As we prepared to introduce little ones to November's featured lady there was only one word that really described her: audacious, as in bold and daring. It's a perfect fit for this month's totally fearless female---Mae Jemison. Let's reclaim that word, shall we?
