Description

New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today Bestseller!

Girls can rule the world—all they need is confidence. This empowering, entertaining guide from the bestselling authors of The Confidence Code gives girls the essential yet elusive code to becoming bold, brave, and fearless.

It's a paradox familiar to parents everywhere: girls are achieving like never before, yet they're consumed with doubt on the inside. Girls worry constantly about how they look, what people think, whether to try out for a sports team or school play, why they aren't getting "perfect" grades, and how many likes and followers they have online.

Katty Kay and Claire Shipman use cutting-edge science and research, as well as proven methods of behavioral change, to reach girls just when they need it the most—the tween and teen years.

Packed with true stories from tons of real girls, The Confidence Code for Girls teaches girls to embrace risk, deal with failure, and be their most authentic selves.

If you or the girl in your life loved The Gutsy Girl or Rad American Women A-Z, you'll love this.

Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook.

      • content: This empowerment book, which encourages girls to increase their self-confidence, is based on the authors' adult book on the same topic. Sandy Rustin, who also narrates the adult version, expertly gives personality to a text that could easily seem staid. Skilled in her craft, she creates a conversational yet educational tone while delivering tips to encourage self-confidence. Even pacing throughout the production makes it easier for young listeners to pay attention and engage with the information shared. Rustin's ability to adjust her timbre to the age of the speaker is apparent when she voices the real-life stories and scenarios. A.L.S.M. � AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine

        April 16, 2018
        Drawing from their title for adults, The Confidence Code, TV news anchors and co-authors Kay and Shipman offer a handbook for confidence-building directed at girls. The authors discuss ways to override negative thought patterns through mindfulness techniques and urge readers to take risks, foster positive relationships, and to move forward after making mistakes. Quizzes, real-world challenges to grow confidence, and thought-provoking questions invite readers to apply the material to their own circumstances, while Lawson’s comic panels and cartoon spot art add humor and visual texture. Culled from their conversations with girls from different cultures and backgrounds nationwide, Kay and Shipman present real-life examples of individuals who have empowered themselves within their own schools and communities. Confidence, the authors suggest, comes not from being perfect, but from building a strong foundation of self-awareness, knowledge, and resilience—and it’s always a work in progress. Ages 8–12.
