    I Can Write the World is Joshunda Sanders marvelous children s book debut depicting 8 year old Ava Murray and her dreams of becoming a journalist The engaging story, illustrated beautifully by Charly Palmer, centers Murray who observes daily life in the Bronx at odds with the representations of it that she encounters on the news This leads to a thoughtful discussion between Ava and her mother who clarifies the gap between lived experiences and news stories, Sometimes the way the world sees us is different from how we see ourselves This insightful story shows the importance of ownvoices stories The shrewd storytelling by Sanders can help one engage in media literacy A must read for children, parents, aspiring journalists, and anyone interested in the Bronx.

    Gorgeous artwork along with uplifting text come together in this picture book that helps young readers see that everyone s story is important and everyone has the power to share their s with the world The little girl in the story is growing up in the Bronx and her world is filled with amazing colors, sights, sounds, smells that all come together to make her home uniquely wonderful to her But when she watches stories on the news, an all together different picture takes shape one that s told through a negative lens A school writing assignment gives her the opportunity to tell her story and present her neighborhood s story from her own experience This would be a terrific book to inspire young writers, especially at the beginning of the school year.

    I am biased because Joshunda is a dear friend, BUT This is a wonderful, wonder filled book It s bright and beautiful and captures 8 year old Ava s world in a vivid way The writing is like poetry but not it s approachable and fun to read And it gives a message not just to little girls of color, who always need representation in children s books and toys, but to all children All kids hear the messages of you can t do this, that s not how that is done, just stay right here Ava s mom shows her that she can do things and dream big dreams I recommend this for kids from birth to maybe 10 and also to all adults
