I'm a Girl! by Yasmeen Ismail

If I could give a copy of this book to every three year old, every school and every public library I would.  I'm a Girl by Yasmeen Ismail is an epic celebration of being proud of who you are. Beautifully empowering and delightfully dotty, this book is yet another fantastic antidote to constant pressures to reinforce stereotypes. 

Yasmeen has a deliciously vibrant illustrative style which springs and bounds off the pages and makes you want to dive head first into the book and feet first into a paint box. 

Little boys and girls will love to reference familiar scenarios  and will no doubt recognise themselves in some of the delightful characters in this book. 

If there was a story which had the potential to help create future grown-ups who are kind, accepting and adventurous this could be it.
