Today, I will be fierce! It's a brand new day, and a young girl decides to take on the world like a brave explorer heading off on an epic fairytale quest. From home to school and back again, our hero conquers the Mountain of Knowledge (the library), forges new bridges (friendships), and leads the victorious charge home on her steed (the school bus). Written by Bea Birdsong and illustrated by Nidhi Chanani, I Will Be Fierce is a powerful picture book about courage, confidence, kindness, and finding the extraordinary in everyday moments.
Super cute illustrations and a great message about being brave, standing up for yourself, others and what you believe in and doing hard things. As cute as it is, however, it did not hold my toddler's attention in the slightest and may be best geared towards a more school-age audience.
