"Children having fun without the onus of expectations is really what this book is about. Any child can aspire to anything, and their gender is not one of the conditions of the outcome. . . This is an engaging read-aloud told in rhyme where young children can see themselves as they explore and enjoy playing with their friends." -- School Library Journal "Chipper couplets promote empowerment through dress-up and play in this inclusive excursion...Newman's energetic first-person verse emphasizes self-acceptance as the speaker describes embracing a wide range of activities...The cumulative cheerleading effect is a powerful affirmation of self." -- Publishers Weekly "Six children diverse in skin tones, whose genders are never specified but could be variously read as boys, girls, or nonbinary, play, create, feel, and interact. . . They show the joy inherent in being themselves, and let readers know that they can do so, too. Gonzalez's colorful characters move, frolic, and express themselves in their signature style as Newman's words offer inspiring, affirming examples of the possibilities open to any child." -- Mombian
