Our friends at Capstone have a beautiful new book that celebrates every readers' talents, individually and voice. It is called BEING YOU.
The words for BEING YOU are by award-winning author and professor Alexs Pate.
The illustrations are by Soud, who has illustrated many books for children and young readers in his native Brazil.
Together, the two of them have brought together an amazing poetic message of love and optimism through a truly authentic voice for all children.
From the moment I opened BEING YOU, I loved reading the words and seeing the illustrations representing all children and the diverse voices, talents, and unique qualities they bring to the world.
BEING YOU fits perfectly into the #ownvoices movement bringing a positive, self-affirming message that will appeal to all children. I love the conversations that it will bring to our libraries and classrooms too.
BEING YOU will be available from Capstone in October 2018. Please watch and share the trailer too.
