Why did I love this book?
“I don’t always feel brave, confident, or strong. Sometimes it’s easier to follow others along...” are the first (very honest) words in this empowering picture book full of affirmations. We naturally pay more attention to negative messages, so it helps to have some truths you can repeat to yourself. It’s a brain thing! The genius of Garcia’s book is the short positive phrases throughout that are relatable for kids and adults alike. I also appreciate the varied cultures, races, religions, and abilities depicted in the representative illustrations. Great for any time of year, this book is a back-to-school must!
