The stories about these fifty-six women are simply but engagingly told along with strikingly beautiful illustrations. To me these stories aren’t just stories, they are career options for my children. So then, here is a book with 56 career options to go through with your child to help her chase her dreams and change the world.
The women in this book have risen above their challenges, fought against prejudices and gender stereotypes and forged ahead full throttle to become activists, lawyers, politicians, scientists, monarchs, and mountaineers.
India is trying to raise its girls differently today and at a crucial time like this, stories from Like a Girl are the right bed-time material for our little ones. While every girl, big or small will feel inspired and empowered through the stories of women like Sunita Narain, Dipa Karmakar, Teesta Setalvad, Chand Bibi, Savitribai Phule, Razia Sultan, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhonsle, Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, Barkha Dutt, Tessy Thomas and Mithali Raj, to name a few, it will teach our boys to respect and admire women and expect nothing less from them. And just for that, I cannot recommend this book enough! More power to the writer Aparna Jain for taking the initiative of writing about these tremendously inspiring women and throwing in gorgeous illustrations to make it easy on the eye.
Buy it, read it, talk about it with your children and their friends and insist that all their school libraries have it.
I have two copies, one of which I intend to give to an inclusive school. This is a book that has to be shared.
P.S While I read it on my Kindle because, well I like the lightness and ease of reading, DO NOT miss the beautiful artwork and illustrations. I brought my iPad for it. A loud shoutout to all the amazing illustrators who worked on this, you all have done an amazing amazing job!
