Summary
The only way to make a bid for a girl's equality is to climb right up to the toppermost bough of the very tallest tree. The dynamic ode to girl power was written by noted Afro-American actor, poet, and playwright Beach E. Richards. First published in 1951, her poem is given new life in this edition that includes an introduction by LisaGay Hamilton and stunning illustrations by R. Gregory Christie. With its inspirational messsage, this book will empower children with the realization that "the path of life goes up and up/not down!"
Summary
Tells in verse how, despite having been threatened with punishment and yelled at numerous times by her elders, a young girl just cannot help herself when it comes to climbing and so ventures, time and again, to the top of the branch in order to demonstrate to all the special skills she has
