Grace loves to act out stories, whether they're from books, movies, or the kind her grandmother tells. Sometimes she plays the leading part, sometimes she is 'a cast of thousands.' When her school decides to perform Peter Pan, Grace is longing to play Peter, but her classmates say that Peter was a boy, and besides, he wasn't black... but Grace's Ma and Nana tell her she can be anything she wants if she puts her mind to it!
Amazing Grace is also included in A Mighty Girl's collection of the Top 100 Mighty Girl Picture Books.
"Gorgeous watercolor illustrations portraying a determined, talented child and her warm family enhance an excellent text and positive message of self-affirmation. Grace is an amazing girl and this is an amazing book." -- School Library Journal
