KIRKUS REVIEW

March is Women's History Month, a perfect time to release a book celebrating the amazing things girls do on a daily basis. Girls of all origins, shapes, color, and size bounce around the pages illustrating smaller, everyday accomplishments as well as the big milestones. An excellent choice for emerging readers, there are many pages with only one line of text and repeating lines that rhyme— "Girl, you're amazing, the things you can do! / Pack your own lunchbox and lace your own shoe." "Girl, you're amazing, the things that you know! / How to write stories where fantasies grow." Girl, you're amazing for the art you create, the show you put on, the help that you lend, the power you've got, the sport you can be, the love that you show, the things that you are, the things you'll become. Energetic watercolor-and-crayon illustrations brimming with social consciousness and amusing details seem to dance through the book. Potter is also a performing director for a mask and mime troupe, ballet dancer, classical pianist, and mother of two daughters. Kroll, a mother of six children, has published over a thousand children's stories and 38 books. Just amazing! (Picture book. 5-8)
