friday favourite – dear girl

My daughter-in-law received the book Dear Girl as a gift for their new daughter Lila. She read it as I held Lila the other day. I have since ordered several copies, a few to give away and one to keep for my basket of books! It is a wonderful message for girls about being  powerful, strong and accepting yourself. If you have any special girls in your life, give them a copy of the book…and maybe keep one for yourself, too.

Dear Girl, Keep that arm raised! You have smart things to say!

Dear Girl, Sometimes you may feel like being pink and sparkly. Sometimes you may feel pretty much the opposite.

You may have heard of the author, Amy Krouse Rosenthal.  She wrote an incredible piece for the Modern Love column in the NYTimes entitled You May Want to Marry My Husband. It was published on March 3, 2017, just 10 days before she died of ovarian cancer at the age of 51. It is heartbreaking and heartwarming.

    I love Amy Krause Rosenthal! You should definitely check out her other books as well. I have not seen this one but I will look for it–I too have a “basket of books” for any future grandchildren.

    I had never heard of Amy before. Thanks for opening my eyes. I was so moved by her column (and her husband’s recent response) that I went out and bought Dear Girl this weekend!
