I'm a Girl!

I'm a Girl! Review

I'm supposed to be made of sugar and spice
and all things nice.
But I'm sweet and sour
and not a little flower.

I am a girl! I am a girl! I am a girl!


Meet a little girl who's spontaneous, fast, and strong and loves winning. Sometimes she's mistaken for a boy, but she definitely isn't one! When she meets a boy who likes wearing princess dresses and playing dolls, they quickly discover shared interests and a wonderful friendship.

I'm a Girl! is celebration of being who we are and not being restricted by stereotypes. Most of all it is joyful and full of energy. Be yourself - there's no one better!

    When I first read this book, I was sort of confused. Is it about a cisgender girl who likes boyish things? Is it about a transgender girl? I think it's purposely ambiguous, and that's okay. The illust...

    This is a pretty good book. It teaches kids to express who you want to be and not what people want you to be. It does this through a decent story but is portrayed through amazing are and pictures. ...
