Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Noted artist and bestselling author Sandra Magsamen inspires girls to grow up confidently and independently in an interactive book that's strong in message and serene in delivery. Filled with powerful maxims and pithy aphorisms, this triumph will have girls eagerly promising that "When I grow up I'll follow my dreams, believe in magic, and reach for the stars," and later, "I'll be anything I imagine I can be. I'll be happy with who I am and what I see." Magsamen's bold yet soothing art -- showing girls playing outside, connecting with the earth and sky, and rejoicing the heart -- is the perfect enhancement for the celebratory message. As an added bonus, this winning book includes such hands-on features as a girl who does cartwheels as she "learn[s] about life from other points of view" and a starry sticker page. With this exuberant affirmation of self in hand, girls will be cheering themselves on as they look toward the possibilities of life. Shana Taylor

This book was the best gift I gave my 5 year old daughterfor Christmas! In a matter of weeks she memorized every page! And it came at the perfect time for her. Kindergarten has brought many challenges and struggles as she is striving to find her inner strength and confidence. This perfect book has helped her to see and feel her femine power and beauty and best of all to feel really good about being her amazing, unique self!! This book is a must for every girl out there, no matter her age!
