Sometimes life seems to make it hard to do what we want to do..what we need to do. Sometimes you feel likek you want to create something, you want to "say" something, you want to show something to the world and share something with the world. You want to put something into the world that isn't there yet. You want to create.
This story is about a determined young dark-skinned girl who finds a way, no matter what might be taken away from her, to be creative, to express herself. Turning to the artistic materials around her whether it might be a pile of leaves or the walls of her rooms, she celebrates her own infinite creative spirit and the wonder of her world knowing her love of creativity is hers forever and cannot be denied.
Beautifully empowering for any child.
