Only You Can Be You: What Makes You Different Makes You Great
Some kids like to dance and laugh out loud, and some sit quietly and make up stories in their heads--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. The mother-and-son duo draws 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 reassurance in their own uniqueness. Whether they are quiet or artistic, funny or boisterous, your children will love this heartwarming read that assures them they're wonderful exactly as they are.
