My First Book of Girl Power is a board style children's picture book by Julie Merberg that was published by Downtown Bookworks on 21 October 2014. The book is 20 pages long and is suitable for younger readers from 0 to 2 years of age. My First Book of Girl Power is the perfect introduction to the women of the DC Comic Book universe. The book uses colourful, classic pop art to showcase DC's superheroines and the character traits that make them wonderful role models for children.
My First Book of Girl Power has been praised by critics and fans for being a positive representation of female superheroes. Lifestyle website and parenting blog The EveryMum included it in a list called '30 Amazing Feminist Children's Books Every Child Should Read' and reviewers have called it "the only book she'll ever need" and "a good example of DC's licensing department getting things right". I really liked how the book illustrated what was strong and impressive about the women, instead of just focusing on their looks. I think this is an important message to give to children, in particular little girls, that women can be superheroes, and not just be Batman's girlfriend.
