Book Nook: Just Be Yourself - A Ladybug's Journey

I recently had the chance to review Just Be Yourself: A Ladybug's Journey by Karen Stone, a book designed for young children to help them form and maintain a positive self-image. In the Happy Peaceful Forest, young kids meet a ladybug who wonders why she's the only one in her family without the special crown. She decides to journey to the shiny purple castle to figure it out. While she's on her way, she meets several different animals, each one giving her advice on self-assurance. At the end, she finds out the way to earn her crown.

It's a cute book with fun illustrations and a very positive image - a great way to start kids on a journey of self-acceptance and positive self-esteem.

“I want to enable children to build a foundation to be happy with who they are for the rest of their lives,” Stone said. “Just Be Yourself teaches children to be confident with their own attributes, skills and appearance so they can build a positive self-image.”

Available at AmazonBarnes and Noble and Balboa Press
