Summary: I don't want to be a ballerina. I want to be a vet. Or a pet. I want to be a frog. Or a dog. Or a cow. Or a cat. What do you think about that? I want to bounce and hop and flop and jump up to the moon. Will you come, too? A book about thinking big and being yourself. Illustrated children's story addressing gender bias towards young girls. Promotes independent thinking and creative self-expression.
