Have you ever called your child by name and they claim to be somebody else? In My Name Is Not Isabella: Just How Big Can a Little Girl Dream?, one little girl's imagination takes us on a trip through history.
When Isabella wakes up one morning, her mother greets her saying, "Good morning, Isabella." But Isabella replies, "My name is not Isabella!" Her mom wonders who's been sleeping in her daughter's bed. As Isabella goes through her day, she takes the role of some famous women who changed the world, including Sally Ride, Annie Oakley, Rosa Parks, Marie Curie, Elizabeth Blackwell, and even her own Mommy.
This is a wonderful book to introduce girls to some amazing role models and empower them with the knowledge that they can be anything they want to be. The illustrations by Mike Litwin will appeal to any girl who dreams big and when combined with Fosberry's text, will prove that there's nothing like being yourself!
