Amazing Grace

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!

Grace is also featured in the complementary Amazing Grace Paper Doll Set and her story continues in the sequel Princess Grace.

Amazing Grace is also included in A Mighty Girl's collection of the Top 100 Mighty Girl Picture Books.
