Description

"'I am lovable. / Soy adorable.' The message is clearly spelled out in this lively, bilingual English-Spanish picture book. The story not only presents 'the wonder of being a girl' but also the joy of running. On every page, glowing watercolors full of movement show happy girls of all shapes, sizes, and ethnic groups, alone and together—“daring to try,” circling the running track, planning a sleepover, shopping at the mall, biking with Dad, winning and losing." -- Booklist
