In Something, Someday, Amanda Gorman, presidential inaugural poet, tells young readers that even when things seem unfixable, there is much they can do to make a difference, however large or small it may be. Even when they’re told their influence may be minimal, they have the power to change the world. With a little hope and a lot of faith, they are far from powerless; they are capable human beings who can influence tomorrow. With the help of a friend, together they can tackle what seems insurmountable, and with a team of others, they can overcome even greater odds.
This is an inspiring work of children’s poetry. It conveys a message so many youth need to hear: that their dreams of a better place, a happier tomorrow, and a more just world are not just imaginings but the catalyst for action. Those who are intrinsic dreamers, young philanthropists, and effectual leaders will love this book. Ordinary, everyday people will as well. The target age range is children ages five to nine; though, parents will likely savor this text well. Gorman’s hopeful, encouraging narrative will leave readers with an inner-warmth and sense of peace that’s soothing to their souls.
