Meena Harris is back with another inspiring children's book, Ambitious Girl! Illustrated by Marissa Valdez, her latest work shows the importance of being confident and standing your ground as a female. And given the fact that her aunt Kamala Harris is about to be sworn in as the vice president of the United States, we can't wait to crack open this title with our little ones.

"When a young girl sees a strong woman on TV labeled as 'too assertive' and 'too ambitious,' it sends her on a journey of discovery through past, present, and future about the challenges faced by women and girls and the ways in which they can reframe, redefine, and reclaim words meant to knock them down," the press release says. "Anyone who's ever been underestimated or overshadowed will find inspiration in this empowering new picture book."
