"When you grow up, what do you want to be? A girl can be anything from A to Z. Look through this book and see the many things girls just like you have become. Then, think some more. Your opportunities are endless." Twenty-five women in traditional and non-traditional vocations such as airplane pilot, engineer, mother, postmaster and zookeeper are briefly profiled in this text that includes two photos of each woman - one of her at work today, and one of her as a child. The entry for the letter Y is "You...When you grow up, just like the girls in this book, you can use your special talents to be anything you want to be." (Ages 5-8)
