Synopsis

Just How Big Can a Little Girl Dream?

Ask Isabella…

She takes a wild ride—and discovers the sky's the limit!


"This story…speaks frankly about self-identity and self affirmation as Isabella decides at the end that she is actually herself…because she possesses the best parts of all of the women she looks up to."

—ForeWord Magazine


"The colorful mixed-media artwork reinforces the fanciful, upbeat tone of the book. Use this story to ignite young readers’ interest in women’s history."

—School Library Journal


Who Is Your Hero?


Isabella’s include U.S. Astronaut Sally Ride, activist Rosa Parks, and sharpshooter Annie Oakley—but there’s no bigger hero than Isabella’s own mommy!


Join Isabella on an adventure of discovery—and find out how imagining to be these extraordinary women teaches her the importance of being her extraordinary self.


A rollicking read-aloud and terrific "read-to-myself" story, My Name Is Not Isabella is capturing hearts and awards, including:



Silver ForeWord Book of the Year Award for Picture Books
Gold Moonbeam Children’s Book Award
Gold Independent Publisher Book Award
Amelia Bloomer List
