“Prince Ronald said, ‘Elizabeth, your hair is all dirty. You are wearing an ugly paper bag. You don’t have any shoes on and you smell like a dragon’s ear. Come back and rescue me when you’re dressed like a real princess.’
Elizabeth said, ‘Ronald, your hair is all nice. Your clothes are all pretty. You look like a nice guy, but guess what? You

"So what do girls like? And what can they be? Anything in the world! A Girl Thing is Everything!"

A great book that puts concrete ideas into a child's mind about their potential. When you say, "you can do anything you want or be anything you want" the statement is not necessarily limiting but it's very vague.

This book puts ideas into play. Girls can be architects, Musicians, astronauts, Chefs, etc.

Very enjoyable. Very Empowering.

* I received a copy of this for review. This does not impact the content of my review.

A brilliant and beautiful book all about how girls can do and be anything they want. Perfect for elementary school classrooms. Great for boys and girls to read together.

The two strongest aspects of this book are the message and the diversity represented. Ferrari covers the whole field of possible employment for people. In the same breathe, it might be a tad bit heavy with EVERYTHING listed. I can see that maybe Ferrari wanted to make sure there was broad representation, but I started zoning out. I probably would have recommended taking a tiny chunk out of the employment section to carry the flow of the text. I will say the the text is simple and the il

A bit heavy handed, but I've seen a lot worse. Obviously a message I support.

This illustrated non-fiction book has a diverse cast of girls doing... whatever they want! There's little enough text that this would really work for an all-girl/girl power storytime I think!

The girls and I loved this. It covers a wider variety of professions than other books and the illustrations are great. Inspired lots of chatter about things the girls might like to do.

This book that answers the question, “What’s a Girl thing? What can girls do? What can girls be?” falls flat. While it technically checks all the boxes for timely topics—empowering women and diversity (the illustrations feature characters of different ethnicities and someone in a wheelchair) it feels very much like it’s doing just that-checking the boxes, and doing so in an uninspired and not creative way. The illustrations are basic, the text is basic, and at times confusing. Girls can be Pilot ...more
