A celebration of self-expression and the power of using your voice, centering Black children, and exploring the many things they can do, create, and say to make their mark.

Look around! Can you see?
The many spaces, places, and ways to
show the world all that you can be?

From painting, music, and slam poetry, to engineering, protesting, and photography, a young narrator journeys through her neighborhood, encouraging readers to explore all the many ways they can express themselves. A gorgeously illustrated and powerful celebration of self-expression shows children that there are so many spaces and opportunities to use their voices--and show the world exactly who they are.

What will you show the world?

"Thoughtful and inquisitory...Show kids the world is their oyster by giving them this thought-provoking book."--Kirkus Reviews

"Dalton's encouraging prose and Peoples' vivid illustrations will inspire young readers to explore various modes of self-expression and find an outlet to help them be themselves and also learn more about their community and the world. Readers of all ages will find comfort in this book."--Booklist

"Dalton cleverly permeates the narrative with sounds, giving the text a musical and poetic quality. Peoples's mixtures of technique and perspectives give the art a dynamism that harmonizes with the text throughout. A testament to Black excellence, this picture book will inspire readers to set no limits to their potential."--School Library Journal

"A rousing rallying cry for young creatives."--Publishers Weekly
