Throughout history, women have made a name for themselves by being pioneers in their fields. From Sally Ride to Marie Curie, Elizabeth Blackwell to Rosa Parks, women have worked hard to change the world.
My Name is Not Isabella is a children’s book by Jennifer Fosberry with pictures by Mike Litwin that tells the story of a day in the life of a little girl named Isabella who dared to dream. She dreams of being an astronaut, a doctor, and an activist among other things, telling her mom what she will do to help change the world.
This is a great story for any little girl to inspire her to dream big and believe in herself. You can never start believing in yourself too soon and never dream too big. In a world full of stories about princesses and fairies, it’s refreshing to see a book teaching girls that they can be whatever they set their minds to.
Not only is this a great story to help inspire little girls, it’s a great book to help teach any child about women’s history.
This book retails for $16.99 and is published by Sourcebooks Jabberwocky.
