A Child Called You is a work of children's fiction penned by author JD Wise. Are you friends with everyone regardless of how they look or the color of their skin? Do you stand up to bullies? Do you take the time to help others? Or are you too focussed on yourself and filled with greed? Did you know that even the smallest act of kindness makes you a bigger, better person and it makes the world a better place in which to live? It’s true. If we all took a minute to consider those around us before ourselves, we could make a whole lot of positive difference to everyone’s lives, including our own.

JD Wise’s picture book story, A Child Called You, is a powerful statement directed at young readers to encourage them to think beyond themselves and to care about others and the world around them. Told in rhyming verse, the author cleverly depicts all kinds of plausible scenarios, from obeying parents to helping those in need and standing up to the injustice of bullies. The author uses simple language so that beginner readers can easily follow along. There are many words displayed in various fonts to emphasize the point being made. The illustrations are bright and colorful and help carry the ideas forward. We all need to learn and be told over and over again how important it is to care about those around us, and to put others first.

This book started out with: you are just an ordinary child of today. As a parent , I had to step back and think about that. Do we just teach our kids to be ordinary? I don’t know about you, but I want my kids to be the best person that they can be. How do they do that ? By being themselves! Just ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Things like helping your neighbors. This author has done a fantastic job! I look forward to reading the rest of the series. Definitely pick up a copy, and remember to support your local bookstores.

i I just bought this book and I absolutely loved it!! It is so creative. The main character reflects the reader in such an affirming way.. We will definitely be reading and re reading. I am also going to purchase copies to give away. Children need such positive stories; especially when the story is about them.
