great book for little girls

While at the bookstore in Seattle, I saw this book (My Name Is Not Isabella by Jennifer Fosberry) on the shelf and thought it looked adorable, but I was in a hurry and couldn't stop to read it. You have no idea how delighted I was to see it on my desk to review when I returned from my trip! I love the premises for this book, a little girl pretending to be famous women from history on an ordinary day. Some of the women she pretended to be were Sally Ride, Rosa Parks, and Marie Curie to name a few. The best part is that there is a page in the back that tells in more detail what each woman did. What a great story for little girls! And, I love the illustrations!
