Can a Princess Be a Firefighter? – Carole P. Roman

description

★★★★★

“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
