It feels like a mark of honor for amazing, young Amanda to be featured in this children’s series. She is in illustrious company which is as it should be. Ms. Gorman inspired many. Her story is well told and illustrated here.
Children will see that there are young people who dream big and accomplish big things. They will also learn that Amanda overcame some challenges to get to where she wanted to be. These included having a speech impediment along with an auditory processing disorder. Children will rejoice at her victory in reciting unifying poetry for President Joe Biden. Amazing, and all things are possible.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
