Build a foundation of confidence in your girls and connect in a new way with a modern alphabet book for all ages.
Inner Rainbow Project's ABC
Words have power. They can hurt. They can heal. They can unite and they can divide. It’s so important to give our girls positive words to build their confidence, and to combat the negative messages they are exposed to.
Girls especially can benefit from having a confident vocabulary to freely express their true selves when navigating the ups and downs of growing up.
While sometimes it feels like there are many things out of your control, you can control the words you speak and the resources you give girls access to.
The good news is, these things make a big difference. You can make a significant impact on confidence by the energy you put into the words you choose to speak and share with your daughters, granddaughters, nieces and other young women 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 to create something special. It’s always something new, because the words apply in unique ways based on the challenges and celebrations each girl experiences each day.
Deepen your connection
This meaningful one-on-one time reading Inner Rainbow Project’s ABC with your daughter gives you a chance to connect, learn about her day in a new way and help guide her to new perspectives about her world.
Each word has been intentionally included for its potential to empower girls. With the learning guide you have everything you need to make the learning stick. Watch her confidence soar with every new word she learns!
Easy access to simple definitions and ways to teach the words that match each girls' unique learning style
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. (Link to download is in the back of the book.)
Even though you likely know what most of the words mean, it’s often challenging to provide a meaningful definition for each word that girls will understand when sharing the book together. That’s where the Confidence Dictionary comes to the rescue with simple definitions to help spark your conversations
And, whether you are sharing the ABCs with a kinesthetic kindergartener or an introverted tween, the Learning Guide is full of ideas to help you make the most of the experience for all girls - and their unique learning styles and personalities. And, we’ll never tell if you embrace some of the suggestions to prompt your own journaling or meditation. Please do!
“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.

“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.

My 3-year old daughter loves the different colors! We sing the words together in all sorts of tunes.
