Just as you are - a beautiful, kind, gentle reminder for all ages!

An absolutely beautiful book with wonderful illustrations and amazing words, this book will resonate with anybody who reads it. It's inherently human to have wobbles and self doubts about who we are especially in a world that tells us we must be look, behave, act, strive for certain things. This beautiful little book helpfully and gently reminds you that you are who you are and more importantly that whoever you are and whatever that looks like is completely and utterly fine and does not need to change. Love it, is part of the regular uplifting collection, and have gifted it. I would highly recommend!

Very special

I don't really know where to start, there aren't really any words to describe how lovely this book is. The words and illustrations are like a big warm hug, a scrumptiously comforting hot chocolate in your favourite mug after a long day. Very meaningful and totally feel-good, a highly recommended read. I will treasure this book always as it is truly special. My daughter adores reading the stories and listening to me read them too. Thank you Lorna!
