Description View

This lyrical picture book from Tony award-winning producer Ashlee Latimer models joyful self-acceptance

Francis loves learning new words. At school, when her class is reviewing words that begin with the letter "F," someone sneers "Fat, like Francis." Francis always thought "fat" was a warm word--like snuggling with Mama or belly rubs for her puppy. But now "fat" feels cold, and Francis feels very small.

After school, Baba takes Francis to the park. She chooses the bench instead of the swing set, and gets very quiet. But when Baba uses the word "possible," Francis wants to know what it means. They explore the park together, discovering what's "possible" around them. Is it like airplanes, hovering in the sky? Or does it look like planting and how some things take a long time to grow?

"Possible" makes Francis feel warm and big--like "fat," before someone else made her feel small. This ode to self-acceptance will model for child readers what "possible" might mean in their own lives.
