I like this book, it fits under personality development because Grace is a African American girl who is playing a role in a play that her classmates think "don't fit her, because the person she plays isn't black, but grace." Age appropriate for ages 3-5 years. Found at pierce college library

This book is such an inspirational picture-book! This book can be used in the classroom to show children that they can overcome anything, and always follow their dreams. ( )
