Mother-daughter book clubs are a great way to encourage reading,
bonding, and socializing among mothers, daughters, and their friends.
But these clubs can do more than that, suggests educational psychologist
and parenting coach Lori Day. They can create a safe and empowering
haven where girls can freely discuss and navigate issues surrounding
girlhood.

In Her Next Chapter, Day draws from experiences in her
own club and her expertise as an educator to offer a timely and
inspiring take on mother-daughter book clubs. She provides overviews of
eight of the biggest challenges facing girls today, such as negative
body image, bullying, gender stereotypes, media sexualization, unhealthy
relationships, and more, while weaving in carefully chosen book, movie,
and media recommendations; thoughtful discussion questions; and group
activities and outings that extend and enrich conversations and make
clubs fun.

Her Next Chapter outlines how mothers can use the
magic of books to build girls' confidence and sense of possibility as
leaders, allies, and agents of change. A list of further resources and
reflections and observations from Day's now-adult daughter, Charlotte,
round out this indispensable resource for anyone who cares about,
teaches, or works with girls.
