THE CONFIDENCE CODE FOR GIRLS is "the book every girl needs to make her dreams come true”
From the authors of the New York Times bestseller THE CONFIDENCE CODE comes an edition specifically for tween girls, published today by HarperCollins.
Katty Kaye and Claire Shipman recognize that the confidence gap between men and women starts at a young age. Pre-teen years are especially challenging for young girls who struggle with societal expectations of perfectionism and voices of self-doubt in the midst of so many changes in their lives.
With the aid of extensive interviews with professionals and discussions with young girls, Katty and Claire have written an accessible and thoughtful book to help young girls (8-12) channel their inner strength. This how-to guide provides girls with the key concepts to achieve confidence and to live up to their full potential as the empowered young women they can become.
