Guest review by Murphy’s Mom

This is an amazing picture book written to empower and celebrate young girls. Even though the Rosenthals wrote this particular story for young kids, it is a great message for everyone. Young children, teenagers, and even women who consider themselves grown can learn how to love themselves. You’ll learn how every feeling, emotion, or way of expressing yourself is valid and reasonable.

I fell in love with this book because of its message encouraging young women to be happy with who they are, not just content. The artwork by Holly Hatum is gorgeous, too — there are so many bright colors, and she mixes photorealistic images in with her drawings. This is a definite confidence booster that teaches all ages it is more than okay to be the “wonderful, smart, and beautiful you!” I hope you will take the time to check it out!
