About the book...

Isabella is a feisty, go-get-em' little girl who has a mission in life.  She is motivated to consummate her dream of becoming a powerful woman that can truly make a difference in the world.  She is very fortunate to have the support of a loving family that not only nurtures her but assists her in fulfilling her dream. 

Isabella dreams of becoming the first female mayor, congresswoman, governor, cabinet minister, justice on the supreme court and yes, you guessed it, the first female president of her country.  She focuses on her goal daily and is willing to work hard and do what it takes to make it happen. 

She knows it takes dedication and brute determination to reach her goals but Isabella is all in to make that transpire .   At the back of the book the author has included a section called... "its time!'  Time for what you ask?  A timeline is featured of prominent women in U.S. politics.  It showcases powerful, successful women like Belva Lockwood, Susanna Madora Salter, Jeanette Rankin, and Sandra Day O'Connor, just to name a few.  Also on tap is a list of books whose main characters are girl's in charge and some websites that you can check out for more information on the subject.  

A wonderful and timely book that can be translated into any language and given prominence in any country in the world.  Girl's all over the world unite and tuck this quote into your heart...
