"You hit like a girl" or "you behave like a boy" are two things we often hear or maybe even say but not fully understand the impact of those who hear it.
I found it very rewarding to illustrate Twigtale's I Am A Girl and I Am A Boy titles because these books showed young boys and girls the true meaning of being a girl or a boy. I hoped to convey a message of empowerment, potential and self-discovery so that boys and girls receiving this message can grow up to foster that message.
