The International Day of the Girl: Celebrating Girls Around the World

Learn all about the meaning of the International Day of the Girl with this book from the Citizen Kid series! The United Nations designated October 11th as a day to increase awareness of problems that affect girls — and only girls &mdaash; around the world and to encourage progress toward gender equality. Nine stories inspired by the real-life experiences of girls from all over the globe, including gender-based violence, illiteracy, lack of access to technology, sanitation, nutritional disparity, and child marriage. These girls and their powerful, and empowering, experiences will stir the activist in every child.

Author Jessica Dee Humphreys's well-researched and illuminating stories are both readable and age appropriate, while award-winning artist Simone Shin's simple, warm illustrations bring the characters and their circumstances to life. This book encourages children to recognize their own potential to make change, providing both a perfect lesson in social justice and a celebration of girl power. A portion of proceeds will be donated to Plan International Canada.
