About the book - Doing What We Want
Could I, Would I: An Alphabet Book for Girls - “A is for Amazing Alisha who Aspires to become An Astronaut.”
This is an alphabet picture book that introduces both girls and boys to big ideas and greater career and human diversity through the use of big words and fun pictures. The whimsical and detailed illustrations are reflective of a global world
in which anything is possible. The illustrations feature young girls and boys from many cultures with unique names, who many not get a chance to see themselves featured as such
in books, or doing the things the children in these books are doing. Closer to the end of the book, the page for letter Y,
“Y is for You and whatever it is that You would like to do” - questions the reader about the future; engaging them
in a fun critical thinking activity.
