“You can be anything you want to be, anywhere, place, or time.”
A little girl, her friend and her mom have a conversation about what to do when she grows up.
Her mom lists everything her daughter could possibly do – from doctor to construction worker to baker – and yet, the little girl still has questions:
“I’d love to do all those things.”
“Will I have to stop princessing?”
To which, the mother laughingly says that her daughter could even do TWO things (or however many she would like).
And to remember:
You can always change your mind.
This is my first foray into the Roman children’s books and let me tell you – this one did not disappoint!
Can a Princess Be a Firefighter was an absolute delight from cover-to-cover.
The words were sweet and fun, the pictures were extremely well done and the whole book just felt like a fabulous read.
I loved how this is an empowering book for young girls – BUT – it doesn’t fall into the girls-should-focus-on-careers trap.
Roman wants to assure girls that yes, they can all do that and more – but they don’t have to give up their girly side.
I feel is an extremely important message to pass along – especially to young children who have the tendency to see the world as an either-or situation.
Definitely one I will keep on my shelves forever.
Don’t let anybody limit your dreams.
With thanks to the author for a free copy in exchange for a honest review

Reblogged this on Miranda Reads.
I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was
wondering what all is required to get set up?
I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice
would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
