Desription: Grace loves stories, and with a boundless imagination she acts them all out. One day, her teacher asks who would like to play the lead in the play Peter Pan. Grace eagerly raises her hand, but Raj tells her she isn't a boy, and Natalie tells her she can't because she is black. Nana sets Grace straight: she can do anything she sets her mind to! Grace's talent bursts forth, and she wins the audition hands down. When Nana takes Grace to see a famous black ballerina--``from back home in Trinidad''--the determined youngster is aroused by the performance, and wins the role of her dreams. (Ages: 4 -8) 32 pages
Ashay says, "Amazing Grace has always been one of my favorite books for little girls. Her character and her story is so real to me. She has such a creative spirit and little girls will identify with her joyful confidence. I also love Caroline Binch's artistic style in watercolor. She really captrues the special bond between Grace and her Nana. A classic, this is the first book in the series. Others include Boundless Grace, Princess Grace and Encore Grace. Must have for the classroom and the library."
