Melissa Harker Ridenour
Playing dress-up in her mother’s shoes, Shelby’s imagination takes her all over the world. But she comes to realize that she has the power to make her own dreams come true.
With a chapter of information on achieving Girl Power, for parents to share, this is a lighthearted book of empowerment for children.
Where did the idea for the story come from?
I saw the need for girls to realize their own self-worth and potential and to realize that they have within them the potential to do anything that boys are credited for doing and even better. I wanted to provide them with Girl Power.
Summarise your book in ten words.
A lighthearted rhyming book for little girls with empowerment strategies.
Give a quote from the books, one that says little but speaks volumes.
“Kids will enjoy sharing Shelby’s adventure as she tries on different personas and, like Shelby, realize in the end that they can do anything (they want to do) and be anyone (they want to be) if they really try!”
