Grace loves stories. She likes to read them, see them in movies, and make them up herself. And even more than hearing stories, she loves to act them out. Sometimes she's a pirate, or Aladdin with a magic lamp, or Mowgli in the backyard jungle. Now Grace is sad. Her class is putting on a play called Peter Pan. Guess what part she wants to play? But Raj says she can't be Peter Pan because she's a girl. And Natalie says she can't because she's black. Ma and Nana say she can do anything she wants if she puts her mind to it. When Grace dares to try out for the part, wonderful things happen. This award-winning book, a top choice of librarians and teachers, is as amazing as its title suggests. A selection of Public Television's Reading Rainbow, it offers young readers an invaluable message, made unmistakably clear by Andrea Johnson's vibrant narration.
