    With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it’s a great time to talk to your Mighty Girl about love — not just romantic love, but the many other kinds of love she’ll encounter in her life. After all, while your Mighty Girl may be years away from experiencing romantic love, she’s sure to have family who love her!

    With that in mind, we've pulled together a selection of girl-empowering books about the love between girls and their parents, grandparents, and siblings to share with your Mighty Girl this Valentine’s Day — and all year round.  There’s no better way to remind her how many people are there to support her, on Valentine’s Day and throughout her life!

    Of course, there’s lots of love outside families as well. To talk to your Mighty Girl about the love between friends, you can find many of our favorite books in our blog post Making and Keeping Friends: Mighty Girl Books about Friendship.

    February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, which makes it the perfect time to start conversations about healthy relationships with the Mighty Girls in your life.
