A little heroine empowers girls to be both fierce and feeling
My goal for I Am a Warrior Goddess (Sounds True, on sale February 6, 2018) is to empower young girls to see their divine potential and innate power. By following our little heroine throughout her day, the book teaches children important principles. Children will see self-care modeled—taking care of their bodies, filling their minds with good books, and even getting a good night’s rest. And they will see how to love and care for and connect with the Earth. Our little warrior goddess says good morning to the sun and runs with the wind; in one of my favorite illustrations she kisses a flower goodnight.
At the heart of this book is a message of kindness—that kindness is powerful. Now more than ever, we need to teach our girls that they are strong. And we need to teach our children to care for each other, to stand up for those who are weak or in need, and to do that coming from a place of strength and love. I Am a Warrior Goddess combines big aspirations (such as “I am a defender of the weak”) with small, daily actions (such as rescuing a kitten from a tree) to show how each of us can make the world better, one small act of kindness at a time.
