BREAKING THE BARRIER
Gender stereotypes are not always obvious, but they follow us from our earliest days and continue to pave our way when choosing subjects at school and career. When asked to draw a doctor, farmer, firefighter or a pilot, it is common for preschool children to automatically draw male figures performing those roles.
REPRESENTATION IS KEY
You have to see it in order to be it. This is why we need inspiring women role models. So that young girls, no matter where they come from, know they can explore and achieve whatever life goal they aim for, and be successful doing so.

As a Firefighter I Highly Recommend This Book!
"As a female firefighter I loved this book and highly recommend it for all! I think it perfectly show what firefighters do in their everyday life on a level for younger kids to understand! It’s perfect for beginners to read on their own or a great teaching tool for new readers who are learning."

Accurate and Sweet
“As a farmer myself, I appreciate the accuracy of the daily events and chores of a farmer. I like how it goes through the seasons, letting the reader know that farming is a year round career, but with so much day-to-day variety.
The text is fun to read, and the pictures are so sweet. I love the cut-outs at the end too! I commend the authors for highlighting women in traditionally male dominated professions. We can do anything!”

A Great Role Model for Girls
“Honestly, as a professional Chef myself, I don’t know whether it was me or my girls who enjoyed this book the most. 🙂
It tells the story of Charlotte the Chef and what her job entails in the restaurant that she owns. Something very similar to a real-life Chef/restauranteur does for a living. In addition, it comes with a cut-out and play section, helping kids to enhance their creativity.
Most of all, it is a great role model for girls, encouraging them to embrace career and enjoy what they choose to do in life.
I am eager to acquire the other books from the series.”
