Book Review - Strong Is the New Pretty: A Guided Journal for Girls

Strong Is the New Pretty: A Guided Journal for Girls

About the Book

Inspired by Kate T. Parker’s internationally bestselling Strong Is the New Pretty, which Drew Barrymore called “the first thing in a while to kind of knock me off my feet,” this guided journal invites girls ages 8 to 12 to discover and celebrate their independent, wild, silly, powerful selves.

Illustrated with favorite photographs from the book Strong Is the New Pretty (as well as more than 20 brand-new images), each page features an inspiring, interactive prompt that encourages writing, doodling, and creative self-expression:

  • Draw a picture of yourself as a superhero—what is your superpower?
  • Invent a new language, and write down some translations here.
  • What makes you unique? List three things about you that make you different.

As girls make their way through the journal, it becomes a source of motivation to be their most powerful selves. It’s a personal keepsake to revisit again and again.

My Take on the Book
This is a great book with so many great activities. The book is a book that really allows readers to think about their lives and their future in a different way. The book encourages kids to use creativity to be kind. Also, the book asks a lot of questions that helps to inspire and to build confidence for young readers. I loved the questions and my daughter loved going through the book for herself. She would carry the book around with her no matter where she was going so she could finish the journal. At the end she told me how fun the journal was!
