~ Momma Braga


Have you ever dreamed of building something? Maybe something little – like a birdhouse? Or something big – like a skyscraper? If you can envision it, you can build it!

A Girl Can Build Anything is a playful celebration of all the different ways girls can make things – from tinkering to tool-wielding, from ideas on paper to big, lived-out dreams that require brick and mortar. This fun and empowering ode to self-expreseeion will inspire readers to jump up and immediately start to build. Because they can. They can do anything!


A Girl Can Build Anything inspires and empowers young girls to get into the world of skilled trades. As a woman who is currently working in the construction world, it is refreshing and wonderful to see this type of work promoted with young girls. A field that is in need of great people to lead and construct marvelous things!

The story promotes that if you put your mind to it, anything is possible! The ability to create and build is a powerful skill to have and one that is needed. We loved reading this book from start to finish. Nikki loves to build and for her to read a story about how a girl can build anything, really put her love for building into prespective.

For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give this book 5 hammers out of 5! It hammered it’s way to the top of our reading lineup. As we read, Nikki brings out her Legos to build some more because she can build anything!

I love how it pushes girls to follow their dreams into construction. I love building and I hope other girls see how much fun it is! ~ Nikki, Age 8
