I’m a Girl – Yasmeen Ismail


23rd June 2016 | by Rachael Rogan

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!

The girl in this book likes to win, she likes to be spontaneous, fast and strong, and because she also likes to dress in t-shirt and shorts, she is forever getting mistaken for a boy. And when she meets a boy who likes wearing princess dresses and playing dolls, they both quickly discover that they share interests that are wide and varied.

I am a Girl! is a wonderful celebration of being who we are and not being pigeon-holed or restricted by gender stereotypes. Most of all it is full of energy and laugh-out-loud funny. Who says that pink is for girls and blue is for boys?
