We Are Girls Who Love to Run Book Review & Giveaway

A few years ago, I worked with Brianna Grant, to review her book, "We are Girls Who Love to Run".  You can visit the website (HERE) and the book is available on Amazon.com.  Two years late, I'm sharing it with you again.

We Are Girls Who Love to Run uses running to inspire girls to build healthy habits and achieve goals. Vibrant watercolor illustrations celebrate real girls with different body styles who find satisfaction in daily life experiences. The characters display their inner strengths as they make simple healthy choices and interact with family and friends.

A sports book specifically designed for girls, We Are Girls Who Love to Run speaks to girls of all fitness levels, from the curious observer-turned-participant to the driven competitor. It celebrates the multiple elements of girlhood that connect to form the whole girl: family life, friendships, emotions, fitness, goal-setting, relaxation, and curiosity. It acknowledges girls’ spirits and applauds their fortitude in believing in themselves.


Well, last week - I was the Myster Guest at Little Diva's school.  I had to talk about something that made our family different that others or family traditions.  I chose to talk about how my family got rid of cable tv last year - and the other activities that we do together instead.  I spoke about visiting the library every Friday afternoon after school, our annual state park pass, geocaching and treasure hunting - and of course, running!  I shared Little Diva's recent Girls on the Run medal, when she finished her 5K.  And, then I had to read the class a book, related to my topic.  I chose "We are Girls Who Love to Run" - because it encompasses it all - and just like her classmates noted, the girls in the book ARE Little Diva.  Her sparkly, outgoing personality, her imagination, her willingness to help others, her determination and commitment to her activities.  I really enjoyed sharing the book with her classmates.

Brianna wants you to share this book with your school, you child's classmates, your favorite charity or organization.  Who do you want to share a whole case of this book with?  A local children's hospital??  Your son/daughter's school library??  Your local Girls on the Run program??  Please share.

Don't forget to order your signed copy for the holidays!!!  These would make great gifts for your daughter.  Visit the website (HERE) for more information.

  5. I think this book is fabulous because I coach Cross Country for youth girls (ages 6-16), and books like this are so important so that girls understand why running is fun and not get driven into intense competition too young or toward eating disorders.

  7. Liked them on FB. I wold love to donate the books to the 5 elementary schools in my district and my public library. The message in the book that running is for everyone is crucial to young girls' self-esteem. Childhood obesity is an epidemic in our country and if we can instill a love of physical activity in our girls' hearts BEFORE they have a weight issue their adult lives will be so much easier and more importantly HAPPIER and HEALTHIER!
