You Can Do Anything


The most inspiring people in the world started with a dream that a lot of other people thought wasn't possible. By setting their minds to something and working hard, they proved that their dream was achievable. Dream big and be what you want to be.

read an excerpt... 

Last night I had a dream of all the things I could be: a pilot, a lawyer, and a captain at sea.

In my dream was my brother, he was there too. He was a dancer, a nurse and a vet at the zoo.

My mum told me, when Great-Grandma was small, boys only did boys things and girls couldn’t at all.

my review...

I grew up with a mother that would have read me this book over and over. I hope many mothers read it to their children over and over too. While this might benefit every child, it is geared toward young girls and all of the illustrations are of little girls. I think this type of book is great but I do think it limits its audience. Maybe that is the author's point and maybe teaching we girls we can be anything is a great point.


about Danni Maynard...

Danni Maynard grew up dreaming big and wanting to break the stereotype of what women were 'meant' to be. She is a lecturer in aviation, a pilot and is working towards her doctorate in, you guessed it, aviation. Danni is still dreaming and has turned her attention to encouraging young minds of today to dream along with her. She is a strong believer in supporting kids to pursue their passions no matter what the world tells them they can or cannot do.

She brings this passion to her daily life as a mother of three amazing children who are constantly reminded that they are allowed to imagine a life that encompasses fantasies, aspirations and ambitions. This attitude to life was shaped by her mum, who is a powerful and supportive role model in Danni's life and sculpted her to be an independent and strong-minded thinker. Danni also dedicates time to Women in Aviation – Australian Chapter to educate and inspire young girls about the fascinating industry that is aviation and the opportunities it presents to women.
