Attention 4th, 5th and 6th grade girls!
Have you ever wanted to speak up in class, try a new sport, or talk to a grumpy teacher but were
too shy or scared to do it? This book can help you!
The Confidence Code for Girls was written by two successful women (who also happen to be mothers
of girls). Authors Katty Kay and Clair Shipman collected the research that went into this book while writing
their first book, The Confidence Code. They found that somewhere between the ages of eight and thirteenm
girls lose on average 30% of the confidence they had going into that period of their lives.
This book may be an easy read, but it isn't boring or dull. It has stories from real girls, presented as short
stories, graphic novel strips, fun lists and quizzes with examples of real life problems and effective strategies
for dealing with them. It offers girls ways to develop the skills and tools they will need to help achieve their goals;
help them learn to be more assertive and more confident.
We'll review the text during our club meetings and discuss how it applies to real life. Occasionalyy
there will be guest speakers who will tell us about their own struggles and how they found the confidence
to overcome them.
The library will provide a copy of The Confidence Code for Girls for each girls in this book club, but we are
limited to only 10 members. Interested girls need to sign up soon.
Our meetings will be held at the library on Tuesdays at 2:30pm, beginning October 6th. Face masks and
social distancing will be expected. Call 365-7801 to register.
