About The Book

Encourage young girls to be anything they want with this lyrical and empowering board book!

When the world is whispering
what she should be,
let her be…

free
to feel the warmth of the sun.
Let her be playful,
let her twirl and run.

Mackenzie Porter, author of In My Heart, shares a meaningful message that reads as both a love letter from a hopeful parent and a mantra for young girls, showing them that they can be both curious and certain, gentle and strong, and anything else they imagine!
