just like me
An ode to the girl with scrapes on her knees and flowers in her hair, and every girl in between, this exquisite treasury will have kids poring over it to find a poem that's just for them.
I am a canvas
Being painted on
By the words of my family
From Vanessa Brantley-Newton, the author of Grandma's Purse, comes a collection of poetry filled with engaging mini-stories about girls of all kinds: girls who feel happy, sad, scared, powerful; girls who love their bodies and girls who don't; country girls, city girls; girls who love their mother and girls who wish they had a father. With bright portraits in Vanessa's signature style of vibrant colours and unique patterns and fabrics, this book invites readers to find themselves and each other within its pages.
