About the Author
Morgan Huff has been creating art ever since she could hold a pencil. Since receiving a Bachelors of Fine Arts with a focus in illustration, she has gone on to work with such clients as Dreamworks and Harper Collins. She finds inspiration in nature, animals, and the joy of simple yet beautiful moments.
Teaching our daughters how to love themselves is the first step toward the next generation's owning its power. It's heady stuff for a picture book, but it's never too soon for a woman--even a little woman--to know her worth. Denhollander (the first of sex offender Larry Nassar's abuse victims to speak out) presents a poetic discourse that resonates beyond its young intended audience. Her simple rhyming couplets speak to the power of image and the messages that shape how we become who we are. The eloquence comes not from the words or phrasing as much as the message as well as the passion. Denhollander, an attorney, a mother, and a former gymnast-turned-coach for a time, delivers stanzas infused with sweet sentimentality as well as fiery fierceness. New artist Huff provides lovely, expressive illustrations depicting girls of many racial presentations in various stages of self-discovery and acceptance. The figures are smiling and cartoonlike, with oversized, round heads and sturdy bodies--though none could be called fat, none exhibits twiglike proportions. Denhollander's book is unapologetically Christian in approach, with more than one reference to "Him" or a creation by a greater power. With sincerity helping to mitigate occasionally artless text, this is a worthwhile message for young girls who, in an age of shrinking women's rights, need all the encouragement possible to find their voices and love themselves. Girls will hear the answer to the titular question.--Kirkus Reviews
