Girls Who Build by Katie Hughes
This book is cool! It is an introduction to building (tools, safety, supplies), profiles of 45 girls with interviews about why/what they like to build, AND an activity book for building projects from bee houses to candle holders to shelves.
Generation Brave by Kate Alexander
This collection of activists stands out as it exclusively features members of Gen Z. As a trans person born in the late ’90s, I’m inspired by the young activist Sage Grace Dolan-Sandrino who spoke out against injustice. This book is the perfect gift as it reminds us of everyone’s power to change the world for the better.
A Curious Collection of Peculiar Creatures by Sami Bayly
This book both informs us about our friends (such as the tapir, naked mole rat, and blobfish) and introduces us to new ones (like the hellbender, monkey slug caterpillar, and sarcastic fringehead). A fun read for animal lovers of any age.
