October Book of the Month

20th October 2020 | Blog

This month we celebrated International Day of the Girl. This day celebrates the importance, power and potential of girls around the world, which is why our Book of the Month is Robert Leeson’s Smart Girls.



Illustrated by Axel Scheffler, award-winning illustrator of The Gruffalo amongst other well-loved children’s books, Smart Girls tells the tales of five feisty heroines that all share one important quality: they are extremely smart!

All of the girls come from different countries around the world and can outwit anyone, whether that be a crafty king, a mean old farmer, an angry squire and even a ghost.

One of the partner organisations receiving this book this month is Greece Action for Education, and we hope this story for young girls will help inspire and provide hope for the refugees in Greece during this unimaginable time.

Thanks to our wonderful supporters, girls around the world can continue to receive books like this as we continue to stand with and for them.
