Excerpt

When I was a little girl, as little as can be,
My mommy said I could be anything I wanted to be.
I dreamed and dreamed of all the possibilities,
Excited about what the future has in store for me.

Book Review: Sharon Griffin
Subtitled “A Little Girl’s Big Boy Dreams,...” Sharon Griffin begins her inspiring, motivational story, written in rhyming couplets, with an African-American family in bed. They happily dream of all the possibilities in the future. As the reader turns the pages, the illustrator offers us a great diversity of faces as they imagine their life in the next few years. The decisions the girls explore are a wide range of occupations from astronauts to school principal, from pastor to lawyer. They consider the less glamorous jobs like truck driver, auto mechanic as if they are open even to the top role as President of the United States.
James Brown said, “It’s a man’s world.” These young girls of future generations prove him wrong. Veronica Sepulveda’s vivid art brings Sharon Griffin’s ideas and words to life, helping the reader see herself and her friends in various walks of life.
As a sign-off the author challenges moms, dads, and family to read the book with their little girls and encourage her to choose several careers she might pick at this time.
Just the act of signing her name might become a life-changing moment for her.
