be a girl, Kelly answers the question with an emphatic "yes." Kelly
shows her sister why through a fun tour of some of the world's extraordinary women,
the careers they hold, and the lives they choose -whether it be that of a doctor,
teacher, athlete or full-time mother.
CAROLYN B. MALONEY, 14TH DISTRICT NEW YORK
"I applaud Wendy Roy for
her efforts to empower young girls through her latest publication, "It's
POWERFUL to be a GIRL!" This children's book emphasizes the vital, positive
message that women have remarkable options and can do extraordinary things. I
wish my daughters had a book like this when they were growing up."
NORSIGIAN, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, OUR BODIES OURSELVES
to have a book that celebrates girls and women as key contributors to all aspects
of improving the health and well-being of our communities. Wendy Roy encourages
girls to think of their bodies and minds as creative forces for social change
- a welcome antidote to the pervasive media messages that portray women primarily
as sex objects."

"Kelly Confident renewed my pride
in being a girl! She achieves her goal of empowering us by showing us real girls
and makes the possibilities for her readers seem endless!"
REBECCA PONTIKES, PONTIKES LAW, LLC
"Media images of women and girls
equate their worth with the ability to be 'sexy' and reduce them to their respective
Books like this one are a welcome antidote to this mainstream
definition and will empower women and girls to stand up for equality."
STOVER, CHILD ART THERAPIST
"It's POWERFUL to be a GIRL!" celebrates
the uniqueness, power, and inner and outer beauty of being a woman. In today's
society women are constantly compared to other women based on appearance. However,
this book eschews this comparison and promotes the importance of female relationships
to enhance emotional well-being. This is a delightful and influential book that
all growing girls should have on their bookshelves and one that I will keep on
BARBARA J. KIERNAN, M.S. Ed.,
AUTHOR OF "BEHIND THE SCHOOL WALL"
"In a society that judges
and values women for their physical appearance, it is very empowering to have
Kelly Confident point out all the other reasons why girls are powerful. This book
sends a message that true beauty comes from within, and while it's important to
take care of our bodies in order to look and feel our best, it is even more important
to develop the character and skills to make this a better world. I look forward
to seeing this book in our schools, libraries and book stores. It is VERY empowering
and will encourage girls not to rely solely on their looks."
"I can't wait to read this book to my daughter.
I want her to embody Kelly Confident's message that she is part of a powerful,
caring group of women, that her possibilities are limitless, and that whatever
choices she makes she will be loved and appreciated."
