Three incredible girl power books to read in honour of Day of the Girl

Every year Ireland is rising as one of the best countries to live in as a woman.

With each generation comes a new wave of strong women but that all begins with parents who create strong girls.

If you're looking for some reading material to help inspire your teenage daughter these girl power books are a great place to start.

On Day of the Girl we look at three incredible tales of brilliant women.

Anne Frank's Diary

Probably one of the best-known books of all time, the diary of young Anne as she hides from Nazi troops with her family has become a classic.

The true story has now been adapted into an illustrated version by Ari Folman and David Polonsky, adding yet more detail into the world and life of Anne Frank.


Brazen: rebel ladies who rocked the world

Written by Penelope Bagieu, Brazen tells the stories of some of history's most remarkable women including Nellie Bly, Mae Jemison and Josephine Baker.

If your daughter is the next rebel lady in the making, she will definitely want to read this.

Legendary Ladies

While Brazen delved into the lives of real-life women, Legendary Ladies takes a look at mythical goddesses that embodied everything that we consider girl power.

Penned and illustrated by Ann Shen it explores 50 of the world's most famous female deities including  Aphrodite, the Greek goddess whose love overcame mortality, Mazu, the Chinese deity who safely guides travellers home and Lakshmi, the Hindu provider of fortune.
