A Mighty Girl Pick of the Day: "I Will Be Fierce!" by Bea Birdsong. "Today, I will be fierce!" declares a young girl as she wakes up one morning. "I will answer the call to adventure." She's not a knight, a hero, or an explorer... or is she? After all, she can "dare to walk with the giants" (the big kids at the bus stop) and "climb the Mountain of Knowledge" (at the school library). When she sees someone being left out in the cafeteria, she can stand up for what's right and build new bridges -- and new friendships. At show and tell time, she can overcome her fears, make her voice heard, and be the hero of her story. And, at the end of the day, she can lead the way home and then rest, because she knows that tomorrow, she will be fierce again!

As this uplifting story follows the girl through her transformation of an 'ordinary' day into an epic fairytale quest, it offers a powerful declaration about courage, confidence, kindness, and finding the extraordinary in everyday moments. Importantly, it also shows children that being a hero isn't always about charging into battle: sometimes it's about showing kindness to others, even if that means standing up against the crowd. Perfect for helping kids prepare to head back to school this fall, this fun, empowering picture book about finding your inner courage and confidence is a delightful celebration of how we live heroically every day! Highly recommended for ages 3 to 7.

"I Will Be Fierce" is available at https://www.amightygirl.com/i-will-be-fierce

For more uplifting picture books that encourage children to take on the challenges of day-to-day life with courage and confidence, we recommend "When You Are Brave" (https://www.amightygirl.com/when-you-are-brave) for ages 4 to 8, "Raise Your Hand" for ages 5 to 9 (https://www.amightygirl.com/raise-your-hand), and "The Day You Begin" (https://www.amightygirl.com/the-day-you-begin) for ages 5 to 9

For confidence-building books for tween and teen girls, check out "The Confidence Code for Girls" (https://www.amightygirl.com/the-confidence-code-for-girls) for ages 8 to 12, "The Gutsy Girl: Escapade for Your Life of Epic Adventure" (https://www.amightygirl.com/the-gutsy-girl) for ages 10 and up, and "The Self-Esteem Workbook for Teens: Activities to Help You Build Confidence and Achieve Your Goals" (https://www.amightygirl.com/the-self-esteem-workbook-for-teens) for ages 13 and up

My new version of THE NUTCRACKER will be published this coming October. I'm thrilled to give you an inside preview of my new book. Of the many hours I have spent listening to music in Symphony Hall in Boston, Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker brings the most vivid imaginings, together with a wish that every child could experience the transporting, fantastical music.
With E. T. A. Hoffmann’s 1816 story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King and happy memories of the Nutcracker ballet as my guide, this book is my visualization of Tchaikovsky’s enchanted music. From the ‘Overture in Miniature’ during the Christmas Eve party, the ‘March’ that leads to the battle against the wicked Mouse King, the string of dances through the Land of Sweets, and all the way to the ‘Waltz of the Flowers’ at the end, the music’s ebbs and flows inspired fanciful scenes for the beloved characters that Marie and the Nutcracker meet throughout their journey. The music also reminds me of trips to Saint Petersburg, so a Russian setting seemed perfect. The borders star animals playing the instruments you’ll hear in each of the movements in The Nutcracker. I especially like imagining the bassoon sounding like a puffing dragon.
I hope this book transports readers through magical sights and sounds as the music of The Nutcracker Suite does for me.

In today’s #21DayReadAloud recommendation, Meg’s father has gone missing and she goes to find him. This book explores math and culture as she figures out how to save her father. It’s the first in a series of five books. Perhaps not for our youngest readers, but it will provide layers of storytelling to keep most ages entertained.

11 Books About Bravery for Kids Ages 3 - 5 | Brightly

To a preschooler, being brave most often entails not being afraid. But if kids wait until they don’t feel scared, they could miss out on new experiences and learning opportunities. Being brave can mean feeling scared and not letting those fears hold you back.

As adults, it’s important that we remind young children that no matter how scared they may feel, they are braver than they believe. These stories full of courageous characters are perfect for showing 3- to 5-year-olds that bravery comes in many forms.

readbrightly.com The stories on this list are full of brave characters — from bears to superheroes to spunky preschool kids themselves — perfect for showing 3- to 5-year-olds that bravery comes in all shapes and sizes.
