My Name is Not Isabella by Jennifer Fosberry

My Name is Not Isabella is about a little girl whose name really is Isabella. When her mother wakes her up in the morning, she declarers "I am Sally, the greatest, toughest astronaut who ever was!" A little while later she decides she is Annie Oakley, Rosa Parks, Marie Curie, and other famous women in history.
I love this book. I love books that bring history to life and that can empower the next generation of amazing girls. Jennifer Fosberry did a great job picking the women she chose for this book and Mike Litwin was amazing with his illustrations. I especially loved his work with the Rosa Parks page.
