Simone received this book as a gift. Until then, I had not heard the story of Grace, a little girl who doesn’t let anyone deter her from her dream.

When Grace’s teacher decides the class will present Peter Pan, Grace knows which role she would like to play. One child tells her she can’t be Peter Pan because she is a girl. Another child tells her she can’t be Peter Pan because she is black. Meanwhile, the women in her life remind Grace she can do anything, and she dazzles everyone with her performance.

Simone has asked us to read this book to her so much I can tell the story without reading the words. I suggest it because parents can easily edit a few phrases and make it fit a modern day dilemma and teach their children how they can set their own course toward success.
