Girl Power, a List of Illustrated Songs to Inspire Girls to Summon the Strength Within

Posted on: August 1, 2016

I am a second generation Girl Scout and my daughter was a Girl Scout, too!  Having such respect and great memories of my time as a Girl Scout, I was so excited to share Sing Books at a Girl Scout meeting on 5/19/2016.  This list started out as a THE SONGS WE SANG list from that visit, but has been expanded. All the songs in this list are meant to emphasize and inspire Girl Power!
