No-one gets to choose if they are born a girl or a boy. And one isn’t better than the other. But there is so much that is good about being a girl! What is it that makes girls so special?
For many years, stereotyping of what it means to be a male or a female has been a big problem for many young people as they try to work out their own identity. I welcome these books as a positive step towards helping our children to rejoice in their biological sex while still feeling free to be whoever they were meant to be. -- Dr Megan Best, Physician and Bioethicist, University of Notre Dame
Wendy conveys powerful truths simply. Every child deserves to be told that they are good, that life is joyous, that the future is hopeful, and that they have something valuable to contribute to that future. These simple messages are foundational and will bless both the grown-ups who read and every child who hears these important messages of love. -- Dr Elisabeth Taylor, Director of Research, Australian Christian Lobby
The lives of our daughters are overwhelmed by celebrity culture, internet fads, and adult expectations and standards. Parents who swim against this tide, and create stable, reassuring, consistent and uplifting environments for their daughters will find this book invaluable. -- Dr Caroline Norma, Senior Research Fellow, School of Global, Urban and Social Studies, RMIT University
