My friend Jimena recently Kickstarted the first in a series of books for girls. Queens Girls are stories of real women turned into fairy tales in hopes of inspiring girls to follow their dreams. They want to break the stereotypical roles girls are usually put into in stories: the caretaker or the love interest.
With each book purchase, they’ll also donate it to a child struggling to dream. I love this idea!
The first one will be of Bessie Coleman, the first African American woman in the world to get a pilot’s license.
The illustrations are beautiful and I can’t wait to see what else they will release.
Check out their Kickstarter for more info!
