Must-Read: “We Are Girls Who Love to Run”

January 27, 2010


If you are a runner, you will read We Are Girls Who Love to Run more than once. Through a young girl’s voice, Brianna K. Grant tells of the beauty of running. She starts with, “Some days I run quickly, my feet carrying me like lightning racing the wind. Other days I walk, soaking in the world around me.”

But this book is so much more than a tribute to running. It’s an essay of comradeship, family, patience, and fun. It’s a heartfelt composition of the emotions of strength, wisdom, and goals.

Highly recommended for any girl, from the youngest to the adolescent, to the high school kid who still loves picture books.

We Are Girls Who Love to Run is fully translated into Spanish: line-under-line. The artist’s watercolor illustrations emit a folksy multi-cultural flair. The paintings often surprise you, making you stop to enjoy each picture with a smile for it’s the combination of the author’s sleek words with the chunky style of the artwork that give this book its depth.

We Are Girls Who Love to Run is endorsed by Molly Barker, founder of Girls on the Run.  She writes, “I invite you to celebrate the joy of running, the wonder of being a girl and the strength that comes through, daring to try, by reading this book.”
