"Just How Big Can a Little Girl Dream?
She takes a wild ride-and discovers the sky's the limit!
"This story-speaks frankly about self-identity and self affirmation as Isabella decides at the end that she is actually herself-because she possesses the best parts of all of the women she looks up to."
"The colorful mixed-media artwork reinforces the fanciful, upbeat tone of the book. Use this story to ignite young readers- interest in women-s history."
-School Library Journal
Who Is Your Hero?
Isabella-s include U.S. Astronaut Sally Ride, activist Rosa Parks, and sharpshooter Annie Oakley-but there-s no bigger hero than Isabella-s own mommy!
Join Isabella on an adventure of discovery-and find out how imagining to be these extraordinary women teaches her the importance of being her extraordinary self.
A rollicking read-aloud and terrific "read-to-myself" story, My Name Is Not Isabella is capturing hearts and awards, including:

My Name is Not Isabella by Mike Litwin is a kids book about how big a little girl can dream. She day dreams big adventures and teaches kids how to use their imaginations. This is a cute book most little girls would love. They dream big but at the end of the day they are always themselves and we encourage them by telling them they can do anything. My daughter loved this book. She is reading it over and over again. She has so much fun looking at the pictures. I thin the message is Dream Big!
You can purchase this book here for $9.99.
Overall I loved this book. It was a lot of fun for my daughter and she still loves it. I would recommend this book to my friends and family.
