I don t usually review children s books, but I really had to with this one.I randomly bought this for my daughter at the school book fair it was closing in ten minutes, so I had to make a quick decision To be totally honest, I grabbed it because 1 It was the only one I saw with a girl character who wasn t a princess 2 It was less than five bucks Swish.I looked at the cover and the subtitle, just how big can a little girl dream , saw the row of hats e.g., astronaut helmet, head mirror, kerchief I assumed it was encouraging girls to dream big and achieve good stuff out in the world I support that goal but also found myself fantasizing about stories like that including motherhood as a worthwhile, commendable achievement.When I eventually got the chance to read my daughter this book, I felt so happy that it exists, so proud of my intuition okay, luck in finding such a lovely book I don t want to give it all away, but it not only encourages girls to dream big and achieve, it also weaves in actual, strong, intelligent women from history AND, it even fulfilled my fantasy of validating motherhood as a worthwhile use of a woman s time, talent, and brains I kind of feel weepy thinking about it I m so proud to be an owner of this book, so proud to be a woman living today, so proud to share this book and my own thoughts about the strength and intelligence of women with my daughter, and my son And my husband And with all of you I could share , but my review is already longer than the book Seriously, go find it wherever you can It will make us best friends.

This one didn t do it for me at all I ve currently been reading a lot of picturebooks and novels around issues exploring the concept of challenging gender stereotypes either implicitly or explicitly and I didn t think this book really succeeded in either even though this is what it felt like it was trying to do There is a nice sense of repetition in the wording and I think young children would like that and I even enjoyed some of the different roles that Isabella adopted Astronaut, Gunslinger, Activist, Scientist, Doctor and Mum but it was here that I think the story frustrated me It was trying too hard to share with the reader female icons from our past but had little or nothing to with any story In no way do I feel attached to Isabella or even interested in her It just all felt a bit forced, unreal and unsure of who its audience is. Review at booksmykidsread.comThose who know me know that raising strong girls who believe that they can do anything they set their hearts to, is a big priority in my life If you haven t already checked out A Mighty Girl, go check them out as soon as you are done reading this, as they are an amazing resource for great books Our latest find from that site in an absolutely awesome book called My Name is Not Isabella.The tagline to this book is Just how big can a little girl dream The answer To the moon and back What is marvelous about this book, aside from the story itself, is that girls can get different things from this story at different ages.The story is of a little girl named Isabella who wakes up one morning and tells her mom my name is not Isabella The mom plays along and asks the little girl who she is I am Sally, the greatest, toughest astronaut who ever was As in Sally Ride, the first American woman to go into space in 1983 Each day Isabella wakes up with a new name and a new profession to go along with it, including the ever important job of mommy At the end of the book, her mother puts her to sleep so she can dream about who she would be tomorrow What the kids don t realize is that each time Isabella changes her name, she is naming a famous woman who has helped change our world As a child matures, the back of the book has information on all of these women and definitions of the roles that helped make them special My 6 year old and I were able to have a conversation about why these women were important She can t imagine a world where girls were not expected to go to school and when aspiring to a job outside of the home was not encouraged We were also able to have a conversation about the activism of women like Rosa Parks and how seemingly small, incredibly brave, acts can make a huge impact in the world around us This is also a great way to show girls that they can succeed in any job, even those that haven t been typically dominated by women It is great that my daughter has no clue that women haven t been always welcomed with open arms to professions like medicine and science, but we need to keep it in her head that those are great jobs for anyone Her current career choice is marine biologist, so we must be doing something right Jennifer Fosberry didn t just write a great book for girls For boys, there is a companion book called My Name is Not Alexander It looks like a great book about men who changed the world.Girls and boys can be anything that they want to be as long as we encourage them to dream big. My name is not IsabellaReview by Anastasia HutsonThe book starts with Isabella s mom waking her up, calling her by her true name, Isabella Throughout the book she denies all the names her mom calls her and dreams of everything she could become in life From the start of the day to the end she thinks of everything from being an astronaut to a brave activist to the smartest scientist The possibilities are endless for Isabella and she s not going to let anyone stop her No dream is too big for this little girl Initially I was confused as to why this little girl didn t want to be called by her own name but as I read on I became drawn to this character and her desire to become anything in the world, and for her the sky was the limit and I admired that The boldness and confidence that the main character carries gives the book an empowering tone For little girls specifically, but really anyone, this book encourages people to dream bigger and put no limits on what they can achieve in life Very often this story uses allusion to portray this powerful woman in history that this little girl, Isabella, is aspiring to be She dreams of being a powerful activist like Rosa Parks and an intelligent scientist life Marie Curie and the list goes on I feel that this is very empowering to the reader because it shows that we can do anything these woman did because they were people just like us.The text and the illustrations complemented each other very well in this piece Throughout the text the author used a few different font styles but most used the bolder styles to emphasize important words and phrases in the story Things such as historical names and words such as, blast, march, discover, and patience were all bolded and put in a different font then the rest of the text The story also had different mediums of art put into the illustrations In the same page there was both a sketched type of drawing and very realistic images that look like they were cut and pasted onto the page I think this gives the story some sort of realism that shows that even though these pictures are depicted as dreams or ideas they can be realistic just like the art is This book encourages young readers to dream big and set the sky as the limit Also in a way I believe it shows them that they shouldn t let people label them and tell them what they can and cannot be I really enjoyed this book because I believe it s important to teach children at a young age that they can be whatever they want to be and they can have whatever they put their minds to I liked the positive message that this book gives. This book is a good way to introduce young children to some of the most prominent women in history Our daughter, who is almost 2.5, is currently in an Isabella obsession, asking to read this book for her bedtime story nearly every night I asked her why she likes this book so much and she said Because I like all the people in it As an adult, it s a bit dull to read aloud, but it s clearly captivating for my daughter She also really likes looking at the pictures of all the women at the end and asking Who s that Since she s so young, I just give her a one liner about each person, but as she gets older it will be nice to have the whole paragraph about each person Incidentally, she also does the same thing on the page with the author and illustrator I am a feminist and to me that means women should have all the options available to have the career they want, to be mothers if they want or not , and to have the option but not obligation to be a stay at home parent if they so choose From that perspective, I think this book offers some great role models to little girls in terms of the historical figures, but there is something about the Mommy character that doesn t sit right with me It just seems like she has no identity outside of being a Mommy, and the fact that we never see her face also contributes to this feeling like her non Mommy identity has been cut out and removed It just seems to be contributing to the message that in order to be a good mother, women must give up the rest of their lives and focus entirely on their children I haven t yet read the Alexander book but I wonder whether the Daddy figure is presented in the same way And yes, I realize I m reading a lot into the subtext of a simple children s book but this is clearly a book that is trying to convey feminist values i.e strong female role models , and I think it just didn t quite hit the nail on the head.
