Synopsis (from publisher):
An exciting new picture book from the bestselling author of Kamala and Maya’s Big Idea!
When a young girl sees a strong woman on TV labeled as “too assertive” and “too ambitious,” it sends her on a journey of discovery through past, present, and future about the challenges faced by women and girls and the ways in which they can reframe, redefine, and reclaim words meant to knock them down.
As Ambitious Girl says:
No “too that” or “too this”will stop what’s inside us from flowering.
Anyone who’s ever been underestimated or overshadowed will find inspiration in this empowering picture book from New York Times bestselling author Meena Harris.
