I'm supposed to be made of sugar and spice
and all things nice.
But I'm sweet and sour
and not a little flower.
I am a girl I am a girl I am a girl
Meet a little girl who's spontaneous, fast, and strong and loves winning. Sometimes she's mistaken for a boy, but she definitely isn't one When she meets a boy who likes wearing princess dresses and playing dolls, they quickly discover shared interests and a wonderful friendship.
I'm a Girl is celebration of being who we are and not being restricted by stereotypes. Most of all it is joyful and full of energy. Be yourself - there's no one better
