New York Times Bestseller

Just How Big Can a Little Girl Dream?
Ask Isabella...
She takes a wild ride-and discovers the sky's the limit

"This story...speaks frankly about self-identity and self affirmation as Isabella decides at the end that she is actually herself...because she possesses the best parts of all of the women she looks up to."
-ForeWord Magazine

"The colorful mixed-media artwork reinforces the fanciful, upbeat tone of the book. Use this story to ignite young readers' interest in women's history."
-School Library Journal

Who Is Your Hero?

Isabella's include U.S. Astronaut Sally Ride, activist Rosa Parks, and sharpshooter Annie Oakley-but there's no bigger hero than Isabella's own mommy

Join Isabella on an adventure of discovery-and find out how imagining to be these extraordinary women teaches her the importance of being her extraordinary self.

A rollicking read-aloud and terrific "read-to-myself" story, My Name Is Not Isabella is capturing hearts and awards, including:

  • Silver ForeWord Book of the Year Award for Picture Books
  • Gold Moonbeam Children's Book Award
  • Gold Independent Publisher Book Award
  • Amelia Bloomer List
