" I couldn't help laughing every time I turned a page of this book. That illustrations are fun, bright and colorful but not too much that they distract from the story. It is also a great way to teach kids about famous people and more importantly that they can be anyone they want to be. That it is important to encourage their dreams instead of laughing or hindering them.Have fun reading! " said.

" This book is the cutest!!!!!! It sends a good message to young children that you can be whatever you want to be. You can be brave, strong, kind, and so on! It was funny, creative, and the art was very well done! I would give this book a 5/5 stars, because it was wonderfully done. I definitely recommend this book to teachers, parents, and pretty much everyone in general! " said.

" Alice liked the cookies and bubble bath scenes best. In this story, a girl insists she is not Isabella and instead assumes the identity of various historically significant women throughout her day. It contains short biographies at the end on the women Isabella becomes: Sally Ride, Annie Oakley, Rosa Parks, Marie Curie, Elizabeth Blackwell, and Mommy. A very sweet story. Thank you, Janice! " said.

" While this title is in picture book format, I would use/recommend it for school age children as I think the references to real women would be lost on preschoolers. The storyline is a bit disjointed as the transitions are made from one woman to another, but that is what daydreaming is like. I particularly like the Rosa Parks reference as Isabella is getting on the school bus. " said.

" I really enjoyed reading this book. I could see myself reading this book to my son. I loved the pictures and how the book flowed. As you are reading the book you don't realize that Isabella wants to be important people that changed history. Jennifer Fosberry placed a section at the end of the book that tells you about each woman that changed history. This book is a joy to read.-Matthew Triplett " said.

" I thought this was a great and adorable book that introduced a lot of the historical characters that students may not be familiar with. I especially liked it because at the end it gave a little description of the different people Isabella aspired to be for the day. A great introduction into history. I feel like for a biography though it doesn't quite meet the criteria because it focuses so much on a lot of different people instead of just one historical person they can learn from . " said.

"I really enjoyed this book for a number of different reasons. When I first started reading it, I just thought it to be a cute little picture book about a cute little girl with a big imagination. While this is a cute picture book about a cute little girl I really liked how it showed important women throughout history and what they contributed. For example when she said her name was Rosa and she was sitting on a bus, showing what Rosa Parks did. I found it to be a very good and cute way to show important women in history. " said.

"I really enjoyed this picture book that pays homage to some strong women in history! I think this would be great for young girls, learning to dream to be anything they want to be! It would also be great for young boys, learning that girls too can be anything! Pretty simple and basic, could have been more, but then maybe it would have been too much (for the target audience.) I do like that there is a page in back with more detail on each woman. I also really like the women selected to be featured in the book (Sally Ride, Annie Oakley, Rosa Parks, Marie Curie, and Elizabeth Blackewell.)" said.
