Sadly, we still live in a world in which little girls in general and girls of color in particular need to be assured of their value. Fortunately, writers and illustrators like the creators of this work are producing books that address that need. In this simple but powerful poem, girls of all hue and stripe are celebrated for just being themselves. Girls sing and play and stand on their heads. They grow tall and strong like trees and mountains; they climb ladders and fall down and get up. They support one another and laugh and cry. But perhaps most important, this book insists girls are different from one another in many ways, and in that, rather than in conformity, lies their strength and beauty. While this book is certainly aimed at a female readership, it needs to be read by everyone for its transformative message to take root. It can be paired with Beautiful (2016) and Brave (2017), by Stacy McAnulty, and I Am Loved (2018), by Nikki Giovanni. Grades 1-3. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
