I bought this book while working with middle schoolers. Not only did it make me emotional to read, but the students would get so excited seeing girls who look like them and thinking of their possibilities! I can’t recommend it enough!
I bought this book because I had many black students (7th Graders) who were interested in healthcare however many of them had never met a black healthcare professional. And WOW when I brought it for them to read, their faces LIT UP. They where picking out each character of this book as themselves. That alone makes such a huge impact and I believe that they felt empowered after reading this book even though it's labeled as a children's book. I believe that this book could be for all ages. One student in particular would ask to read this book if she was having a bad day. This book was truly needed and I believe it should be in every school! I love the diversity of the professions as well. Many of my students did not know professions outside of a nurse or doctor. This opened their eyes to other possibilities. Thank you Orezime for bring this gem into their lives!
First off, wow. This is truly the book I wish I had when I was a little girl. Orezime has truly gifted us with a book that highlights major healthcare careers WITH little girls that look like US. Little girls can grow up envisioning themselves as doctors, veterinarians, optometrists and more with a clear vision in mind. The story is amazing, the illustrations are SO MIND BLOWING. I'm just....so in love with this book, and I can't wait to continue to buy this book for every little girl in my life. It's so important. Thank you, Orezime.
This book exceeded my expectations! The artwork is beyond beautiful and the story itself is incredibly touching. There is a lot in this book for children to enjoy, especially young girls of color.
This book will allow all girls to see themselves in science and, more specifically in medical science.
