Inner Rainbow Project's ABC
WORDS HAVE POWER.
Words have the power to build VOICE, the nurture the ability to SPEAK YOUR TRUTH and to SPARK ACTION. Words have the power to TEACH RESILIENCE AND STRENGTH, and to PROMOTE COMMUNITY AND PEACE.
It’s crucial to give our girls access to the words they need to share their authentic voice.
Girls are still receiving cultural messages encouraging them to keep their voices silent. There are still pressures to focus more on building outer appearances than inner qualities. To compete instead of include.
Girls today need access to an empowering vocabulary to help freely express their true selves.
You can combat the negative messages and make a significant impact on confidence by the energy you put into the words you choose to speak and share with the girls in your life.
Inner Rainbow Project’s ABC is more than a book. It includes all the resources you need to take the words from the page and turn them into valuable learning experiences and lifelong takeaways
Open the door to new conversation
Every day is a new opportunity for an empowering conversation. It’s always something new, because the words apply in unique ways based on the challenges and celebrations each girl experiences each day.

Inner Rainbow Project's ABC isn't just a book - it comes with everything you need to teach these words and make the learning stick.

“Wow! I am honestly surprised by how what I thought would be a cutesy ABC book actually empowered ME right along with my 8 year old daughter.”
Words I seemed to need to read jumped off the pages at me, and I felt more positive and confident as I read. No, this is not just a cutesy ABC book. It's a beautifully arranged collection of powerful words every girl should know. To put it bluntly, it's a kick-ass ABC book!
And the possibilities for great conversation, social-emotional learning, and most importantly meaningful connection through this awesome book are endless. Typical alphabet books and kids' dictionaries with apples, bears, and cars have their place, but the Inner Rainbow Project's ABC should be right next to them and on every little girl's bookshelf."

“This book is like magic, opening up conversation with Bella and instilling in her every day how she’s amazing in different ways.”
Reading Carly’s book shifted something for my Bella and me. She listens closely as I read the words and inches closer the more we talk. We pause as I tell her examples of how I see her adventurous and brave, and ask her how she sees different qualities in herself. The book is a journey unique for each kid, as it tells her own story. I read it to Bella at night now to debrief her day and affirm what qualities she felt that day. This book has been such a GIFT to us!”

Created with love by a passionate mom...
I created this book as a gift for my daughter to help her hold strong to her ability to love and accept herself for who she is and to freely express her true self with others.
My wish for her is the same as for everyone who holds this book. I hope these words fill your mind and heart and help you stay connected to the unique spark of light inside you.
NOTE ON THE SECOND EDITION
When I first selected the words for this book, my goal was to help people access the vocabulary of positive words needed to nurture confidence and connection. Along the way, I grew to realize that in order to accomplish my goal, I needed to include more depth -- there are layers to what we need to learn to be our best, happiest selves.
We need words to speak our truth and be ourselves in relationships, words to help build the strength to keep going when things get tough, and ones to help us create a culture of unity and kindness. We also need support in making our own meanings and learning how to use these words to build inner knowing and change. The additions reflect my ever-evolving understanding.
PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION:
“How wonderful to have these words be the ones that are imprinted onto a child’s heart and mind.”
I love this book! It's so beautiful. As I read it aloud, I'm speaking goodness and worthiness. And, that's a true gift for any child to hear.
Flo Gascon, mom of 2
“Thank you for making this book! It’s very easy to fall in love with.”
My 3-year old daughter loves the different colors! We sing the words together in all sorts of tunes.
