Inspiring Children’s Books for International Women’s Day

Fat Mum Slim /

Anyone else raising a curious kid hungry to be inspired? With International Women’s Day around the corner {March 8th} I thought I’d pull together inspiring children’s books for girls {and all children really!} filled with tales and pictures of inspiring women who have and are changing the world.

My sister bought Lulu the Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls, and from there we just got hooked. We love how inspiring the stories are, and that we can learn something from the story of each trailblazer.
