Book Review


As parents, there are so many things we wish our children can hear from us. This book by Shani King puts these thoughts into words perfectly. The book asks the reader directly if they have been told they can be anything they choose to be. It asks if the reader knows that people in all professions are encompassed by those from different cultural backgrounds. The book then delivers affirmation to the reader that they are loved and thought of all the time—that their flaws are what make them special. Amongst many positive messages, the book tells the readers that they need to treat everyone with love and respect and stand up for what is right.
