What is This Book About?

The A to Z Guide to Jobs For Girls is an adorably illustrated ABC Board Book for children featuring young women in different career roles such as Firefighter, Heavy Metal Guitarist, Librarian, and Quarterback!

You Can Be Anything You Want to Be!

The A to Z Guide to Jobs For Girls is meant to help empower young girls and show them from the very start that they can follow any career path they choose, including careers that are not traditionally seen as appropriate for women. From Astronaut to Zoologist, you can be anything you want to be! 

How It’s Made:

The A to Z Guide to Jobs For Girls is written and illustrated by Charles C Dowd, with assistance from his two children, CJ and Allison, both of which helped to brainstorm different ideas and careers, as well as helping with the coloring process. This book is truly a collaborative family effort!

What You’re Getting:

The A to Z Guide to Jobs for Girls will be a 28 page 6”x6” chunky board book designed specifically for small hands. The book printing will be handled by Print Ninja, so you can expect a top quality product!
