About this project

This series of children’s books is about empowering our girls, celebrating a child’s imagination, and highlighting the importance of play, especially outside play.

Jacqueline’s favorite thing to say is, “Girls can do anything they want to do!”  And, she means it!  She embarks on a series of adventures, fueled by a very active imagination, that explore many, varied fields and moments in history.  She is undeterred when someone tells her that girls can’t or girls didn’t do something.

Her imaginative play is an integral part of these stories as well because it is undervalued by our society.  This creative force is responsible for much, if not all, of our advances yet we do our best to discourage it in our children.

I created this character to give my daughter and other girls someone who is not afraid to be strong and say that "girls can do anything they want to do!" Too many young girls start to minimize their strengths before they get to middle school, even when they have strong capable mothers. I hope that these stories will help girls to have the strength to be themselves and stop hiding their power.  

Thank you for your support for this project!
