Book of the Week: I am a Girl

By Pathways

Written and illustrated by Yasmeen Ismail, published by Bloomsbury

A bright picture book packed with bold illustrations and simple text, I am a Girl is all about shrugging off gender stereotypes and unapologetically being yourself. The book features a feisty little girl who is anything but sugar and spice. But much to her annoyance, she is often mistaken for a boy. 

Filled with beautiful illustrations that radiate energy, the book captures the power that comes with being yourself, irrespective of how others see you. Young readers will find inspiration in the protagonist’s confidence in asserting that she is a girl to anyone who assumes any different.
