I Am Me by Jennifer Francis - OPTIONAL

I Am Me by Jennifer Francis. PICTURE BOOK. Girl Empowerment, 2017. $10. 9780692914229


Descriptions of what a girl can be are paired with the definition of that descriptive word in this simple book.  The pictures are of an 8-12 year old African American girl. 

While it is always notable to see any children of color depicted in picture books, this book fell a little flat due to its simplicity. The illustrations are very cute and the content is potentially confidence building, there just isn’t a lot of depth to it.
