The Billie B. Brown books look like big-girl books, but they are about a little girl, finding her way. The art is contemporary, the content is timeless, and they’re perfect for beginning readers, with word art or illustration on every second page and no more than 50 words per page. Billie B. Brown is a role model to be proud of: she’s 100% herself, stands up for what she believes in, protects her friends and does it all in her own special way.
Billie B. Brown prepares girls for new social situations and they will recognize their lives reflected in Billie’s “real world” adventures, from their first sleepover, to ballet lessons, playing with boys and managing friendships.
Billie wants to be The Soccer Star, but the boys at school say she can't play. How can Billie prove that girls can play soccer too?
