God created us each to be unique – Only You Can Be You. That is the theme behind this new children’s book by bestselling author Sally Clarkson and her son Nathan.
What The Publisher Says About Only You Can Be You
Some kids like to dance and laugh out loud, and some sit quietly and make up stories in their heads—but we’re all different, and that’s okay because the maker of everything made us this way!
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.
My Review of Only You Can Be You
I am always buying books for my grandchildren and look for books that are both engaging (I mean, if they are boring no little one will sit through the reading of it) and share a message.
I just love the message of this book. It’s hard to be a kid. Especially one who is different. This book reinforces the message that God doesn’t make mistakes and that he created each of us just the way we are: perfect in His eyes.
The illustrations are colorful and engaging for children (and adults!) and beautifully detailed.
The text is humorously rhyming without being too cheesy. Kids of all ages will enjoy this picturebook.
Our dog, Cruz, really enjoyed the book, as well. 🙂
I haven’t had the opportunity, yet, to read this one to my grandchildren, but I know they will love it. In fact, I plan on purchasing extra copies so that I can give one to each of them this Christmas.
If you are looking for a book to share how special your child or grandchild is with them, this is the book you’ll want to buy.
