The little girl in the story Who Are You by Shanti Prem is free spirited and does not want to be tamed. She says she came into this world clear minded and free, and no one has any right to clip her wings. She wants to fly so high so that she can see everything clearly and she does not want anyone to teach her how to be great. She has notes stuck in her room saying ‘Be Grate’, ‘Yore Buteeful’, ‘Stae Tru’, and ‘Be Kind’. She sets the pace for her joyful day and does not want anyone to determine her fate. She wants everyone to smile more often so that it will loosen the entire negative ploy.

The story encourages every child to be themselves and live a wild and free life without being tamed. She wants everyone to be true to their own self and set an example to others by using the strength within them. The message conveyed is deep and strong and the author makes the concept palpable to young readers with the help of some adorable illustrations. It is a beautiful story that will give confidence to readers to be their own selves and live their lives with a smile. The idea of having positive affirmations will motivate children to make their own positive affirmations so that they feel good and stay motivated in their daily lives. It is a good storybook for parents and tutors to read out to their children and get them to be more confident while facing life.


This is a book every child should have! Learning to accept themselves as they are. Also the rhyming words gives the book a unique feel. Five stars.
