Skip right into this joyful, diverse, alphabetic picture book celebrating girls around the world.

A,my name is ALBA and my sister's name is AYEL N. We come from ARGENTINA and we are ADVENTUROUS.

Girls from 26 different countries-Argentina to Zambia-are beautifully and thoughtfully represented in this A to Z tribute to global girlhood. Children will enjoy reading about each girl's name, empowering chracter trait, and country, while learning how we are all connected.

Globally-minded kids can also find the countries on a map at the backof the book and dream of places they'd like to visit.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In an alliterative abecedarian, Masi takes readers on a global journey to meet girls and women from 26 countries who exhibit as many vaguely aspirational traits. Full-color spreads in muted hues accompany the litany, depicting subjects of various skin tones, hair textures, and abilities against a slice of each country's landscape--in Argentina, two "adventurous" siblings jump rope against a mountainous backdrop, while New Zealander Nelly, who uses a wheelchair, proves "nurturing," coddling a lamb in a grassy field. One scene seems to reduce a country to a single traumatic event (two "heroic" figures in Haiti are seen picking their way across a pile of rubble, animals on their backs), while others extol virtues that feel laudable chiefly from a Western perspective, but the friendly illustrations of an inclusive range of girls are notably lively. Includes a map of highlighted locations. Ages 3--7. (Feb.)"
