Having mentors and people to look up to are great. But we have an epidemic in our society to stand out so much that we are actually following the crowd or that mentor to the letter rather than our creator, doing what they do, saying what they say and not really thinking for yourself in order to be accepted. Now I am not saying that is you or that mentors or heroes are bad, but I will admit I have been in that trap before. It is great to share with children the message of being a unique individual and the FREEDOM and JOY that brings.
In the book Only You Can Be You is absolutely perfect to discuss what makes you different and what makes you great with kids!
In their first picture book, bestselling author Sally Clarkson and her son Nathan encourage children on the journey to discovering their strengths. Mother and son duo draw on themes from their first book, Different, the emotive story of Nathan's experiences growing up with mental illness and learning disabilities and Sally's journey to loving him unconditionally. With the powerful truth that what makes you different makes you great, Only You Can Be You will help children embrace their differences and celebrate the differences in others.
The irresistible rhymes paired with Tim Warnes's whimsical illustrations encourage your children with the reassurance they're looking for in their own uniqueness. Whether they are quiet or artistic, funny or boisterous, your children will love this heartwarming read that assures them that they're wonderful exactly as they are.
