“If you enjoyed Dr. Seuss’ Oh, the Places You’ll Go, you’ll love Oh, The Things I Can Be When I See Me. Although the story features famous black women, everyone can benefit from the encouraging underlying message: You can be whatever you want to be. This book encourages creative play and letting children dream about what they would like to be when they grow up. All public and school libraries should have Oh, The Things I Can Be When I See Me.”
