Amazing Grace

Author: Mary Hoffman

Publisher: Frances Lincoln (2007)

Grace rightly thinks she can be anything or anyone she wants to be: Joan of Arc, Hiawatha, Helen of Troy, Mowgli from The Jungle Book... and Peter Pan in the school play. But when her classmates tell her she can't play Peter Pan because she's a girl, and because she's black, Grace gets downhearted. When Grace's grandmother proves, through a positive black role model, that Grace really can be anyone she wants to be, Grace believes in herself once more--just in time for the auditions. Amazing Grace is a modern tale of hopes, aspirations and role models, that is pitched perfectly for the very young reader. Simple language describes an everyday situation that transforms Grace into an extraordinary girl. A wonderful, hopeful, and yet realistic, story for today's children.
