Elements for girls: A Fun & Engaging Self-Discovery Project – $24.99
“ELEMENTS for Girls A Fun & Engaging Self Discovery Project,” provides a way for girls to slow down, disconnect from technology and connect with their authentic self,” said Sandra McDonnell, AuthenticME partner. Each of the book’s 10 chapters invites girls to read, reflect, create and complete interesting and introspective activities while exploring themes such as feelings, self-acceptance, empathy, decision making and communications. The theme of self-care is woven throughout the book in sections on sleep, healthy eating and stress management.
Integral to the concept is a bracelet that girls create as they work their way through the book. “The beads are a fun, visual reminder of what is learned in the book,” according to Mary Ellen Young, AuthenticME partner and founder of Helping Girls Navigate Adolescence (HGNA), a Downers Grove, IL based non-profit organization that provides a variety of supportive programs for girls and parents. “It takes time and practice to develop healthy, positive habits and skills,” said Young.
