Description

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.

fullDescription

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.

        September 2, 1991
        ``Grace was a girl who loved stories.'' Empowered by the strength of her imagination and the love of her mother and Nana, this dramatic, creative girl constantly adopts roles and identities: Joan of Arc, Anansi the Spider, Hiawatha, Mowgli, Aladdin. When her class plans a presentation of Peter Pan , ``Grace knew who she wanted to be.'' She holds fast despite her classmates' demurrals; Nana, meanwhile, reminds her granddaughter that she can do anything she imagines. When Nana takes Grace to see a famous black ballerina--``from back home in Trinidad''--the determined youngster is aroused by the performance, and wins the role of her dreams. Featuring colloquial dialogue and endearing characters, Hoffman's ( My Grandma Has Black Hair ) tale is truly inspiring. First-timer Birch contributes evocative, carefully detailed watercolor paintings, which add their own share of emotional power and personal passion. Ages 4-8.
