Oh, The Things I Can Be When I See Me
Astronaut. Ballerina. Chef. Doctor.
What do you want to be?
Samara and Lyric are cousins who love to visit their grandmother, MeMe. The girls talk about all the wonderful things they want to be. Their self-esteem and confidence grow as they learn about women who have done what they hope to do.
Oh, The Things I Can Be When I See Me was inspired by a grandmother’s conversations with her granddaughters. Filled with historical pioneers and modern-day trailblazers, this picture book empowers girls of color by providing examples of successful women who look like them.
“As the mother of two brown girls, I know how important it is for young girls to ‘see’ themselves. Oh, The Things I Can Be When I See Me is an engaging and powerful book, which encourages girls to pursue their dreams.”
—Dr. Karen M. R Townsend, women’s empowerment expert
