Girls Read the World - Ciarra Chavarria

"This book not only encourages young readers to be themselves, but also encourages the grownups reading along to help them. It's an excellent way for all young readers to hear the message that they can let their light shine. Being You will be equally inspiring to young girls and young boys of all ages and I highly recommend you check it out!" - Girls Read the World
