Cover of Meena Harris' children's book, A is for Ambitious. The cover has a read-orange background, and a big A in the center, with girls running, skipping, and skating around it. In the front, standing tall with hands on her hips and a big smile, is an Black girl with curly-shoulder length hair and a yellow star t-shirt. Some readers might recognize her at the star on the cover of Harris' first book, Ambitious Girl.
