From multi-award–winning singer, artist, actress, and icon, Mary J. Blige, comes a fun and inspirational story that teaches young readers they can be anything and they are enough.
Most of the time, people say “no” or “you can’t” because they dream too small.
Young Mary has been told that there are many things she can’t do. Like stay up past bedtime, or be an astronaut or become president. But what she really wants is to sing, and she isn’t about to let anyone tell her she can’t do it!
A powerful motivating tale about a confident and ambitious girl who doesn’t feed into negativity, legendary artist Mary J. Blige’s debut children’s book proves that anyone can make their dreams come true by believing in themselves. It's a great conversation starter for overcoming discouragement from others.
Brought to life with imaginative illustrations by Ezra Jack Keats Award-winning illustrator Ashleigh Corrin, Mary Can! is perfect for go-getters who aren’t afraid to be a YES in a world full of NOs.
