PreS-K—This picture book follow-up to I Am Enough is an inspirational "can do" paean to youth empowerment, encouraging readers to believe in themselves and dream big regardless of their skin color, racial background, or abilities. Bobo's digital illustrations, set against a white backdrop, depict a diverse set of children reaching, dreaming, playing, and achieving whatever they set their minds to. Although it is not breaking any new ground, this may be a useful title for teachers and caregivers looking for additional inspirational titles portraying children with varied abilities from a range of racial and cultural backgrounds. VERDICT An additional purchase. —Jessica Marie, Salem Public Library, OR
