You Are Perfect Just the Way You Are by Sannel Larson is a perfect book for children that tells them that they are all perfect in their own way. The author metaphorically tells readers about the charm, difference and uniqueness of each child by comparing the charm and beauty in diverse objects like the pebble, rainbow, star and many more. It teaches children to accept themselves for what they are and appreciate their beauty and charm as true beauty lies within each of us. The rhyming verses and the colorful illustrations will captivate children and illustrate the author's concept easily.
It is a beautiful theme that speaks to kids about self esteem and acceptance. It is a useful book for children and I recommend it for all school libraries because it is perfect for read aloud sessions in libraries and classrooms. It makes a good bedtime story book too for parents and grandparents to read out to kids and grand kids. Books with these positive messages are ideal because they teach young readers good things at a very early stage in life.
'You're a snowflake unlike any other, so unique in one way or another.'
These lines convey the essence of what the author wants to tell young readers. The rhyme, the whimsy, the colors, the illustrations and the rhythms make it a charming story book. The pictures complement the words beautifully and add to the effect of the concept.
