EXTRAORDINARY GIRLS celebrates girlhood with all its joys and challenges. With a spirited foreword by Isabel Carter Stewart, director of Girls Incorporated(r), EXTRAORDINARY GIRLS strives to empower girls' attitudes about themselves and their world.
Maya Ajmera, the author of CHILDREN FROM AUSTRALIA TO ZIMBABWE and TO BE A KID, joins Sarah Strunk and Olateju Omolodun to introduce girls from all over the world who live extraordinary lives. EXTRAORDINARY GIRLS explores the special talents, relationships, and dreams that make every girl unique. In short chapters focusing on religion, sports, education, friendship, and more, girls from around the world are pictured growing and becoming active and integral members of their communities. EXTRAORDINARY GIRLS tells the stories of a few specific girls who have met and exceeded their dreams at very young ages. Meet Alexandra Nechita of Romania, an unusually gifted painter who had a book of her works published when she was merely eleven years old. Also, meet Aubyn Burnside of the United States, who at the age of eleven rallied together local organizations to collect over 10,000 suitcases to distribute to foster children to help with their moves. These stories, and an inspirational text that paints a glorious portrait of girlhood, are sure to inspire girls of all ages to strive to achieve their highest potential.
A tremendous collection of beautiful photographs works together with the comprehensive text creating a portrayal of girlhood that is as vibrant and active as girls themselves. Contributions from various photographers, including Peace Corps volunteers, adorn each page with brilliant pictures of girls from around the globe.
