This encouraging, sentimental book is packed with positive messages that underscore boundless possibilities for young girls. There's no story arc in My Little Brave Girl. Instead, there are scenes of happy, curious girls playing together matched with abstract, metaphorical platitudes, such as "The sun burns bright, my little brave girl, and you will find the light." It may be challenging for little ones to grasp the meaning of the messages, but they'll enjoy Kelsey Garrity-Riley's soft, pastel-palette watercolor and colored pencil illustrations of little girls having fun. And the book could make a cozy read-aloud with a grown-up who can help explain the metaphors.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
