    I Also Recommend:

    A little girl realizes her own strengths and qualities by pretending to be six different influential women.

    Can a little girl be an astronaut, sharp-shooter, and scientist? Isabella can, and she can do that and more all in one day. Although this book seems to be a little over my four-year-old granddaughter's head, she still loves it and asks to read it over and over. I think she enjoys taking it all in. I can almost see her little brain cogs turning as we flip through the pages. She likes the repetitiveness of "My name is not . . ." and the suspense of who the little girl will be next. The action-filled illustrations set a nice pace as the reader watches Isabella imagine her way through the day. I like what Mike Litwin does with the illustrations of Isabella's mother. He clearly works through Isabella's eyes. Even though the illustrations only reveal the mother's face once, her presence is felt throughout the book via illustrations from Isabella's perspective. The mom asks questions on every other page such as, "Then who has been sleeping in my daughters bed?" and "Then who will eat this fine breakfast I cooked?" My granddaughter likes the playful interaction between Isabella and her mother. I'm not sure which she enjoys more: When Isabella says, "I am Mommy . . . ." or when the story comes full circle and Isabella snuggles up under her blankets. Now, back to the book being over my granddaughter's head. She overheard my daughter and me talking about how cool it is that Jennifer Fosberry includes short blurbs on each famous woman, including Mommy, in the back of the book. The next time my granddaughter and I read the book, she went to the back pages and asked, "What does it say about the women?"

    Highly Recommended - every little girl should have a copy of this book

    This beautiful book highlights the accomplishments of women throughout history in a quick, pattern style layout. It's a great read for all and especially recommended for moms and daughters to read together. It's a great book to use in the classroom as well.

    Perfect Little Gem of a Children's Book

    'My Name is Not Isabella' is a lovely little dialogue between a mother and daughter, wherein the daughter imagines herself as many different historical figures. It is almost in verse form, with a repetitive structure that will make it a favorite during many bedtime rituals - and the bonus section at the end with biographical information on all of the women referenced (including mom - SUCH a sweet touch) boosts the educational content and is a catalyst for further discussions with older children. The illustrations are dynamic, with many subtle touches that enhance the message. Not just for girls, the message is a wonderful one for all children about having the confidence to be all you can imagine. It's my daughter's new favorite!
