A Girl Can...
~ Author Alli White
Illustrated by Gretchen Jeens.
Young girls today don't need to be taught to be quiet and dainty, nor to have grit and be tough. They simply need to be encouraged to be themselves. In A Girl Can . . ., we watch as a little girl shows all sides of herself unconditionally, no matter how gentle or strong. This character illustrates that living her feelings out loud is what it means for a girl to be brave and true.

Author Alli White's hope is to encourage girls and boys alike to be proud of who they are, as they are-even from a very young age. She feels so grateful to have been able to collaborate with her talented mother, Gretchen Jeens, in the perfect author-illustrator duo for A Girl Can . . .

Gretchen says the opportunity to share in this loving tribute to Alli's daughters (Gretchen's granddaughters) has been a gift she will always cherish, and she is honoured to help pass on this important message to children everywhere.
