“So many children and parents could benefit from the wonderful message of this book – you are beautiful and wonderful and have promise…even when everyone around you tells you otherwise. Even when you are born into a harsh world. Even when others put you down every time you try to succeed. And there is a rose garden for you somewhere.” –Beautiful Books for Children

A wonderful story for children about how special and perfect each and every person is just the way they are! A great book for children who are being bullied or have any doubts about their own self worth! –Patty Hankins
My daughter and niece both 5, and my 8 year old love this book. My son said @ the end of the story: So Powerful!! They enjoyed the story and the pictures, and they followed the book and the positive and empowering messages easily and clearly. They girls said: it’s the best book ever and we love the author! We can’t wait for the next book. Thank you Sheri Fink for sharing this wonderful book. –Yeliv Adams
This is such a wonderful book for young children because it addresses so many feelings that kids struggle with, especially after they start school. It is beautifully illustrated and the text discusses things like bullying, feeling out of place and different from others. Children and parents alike will enjoy reading this one again and again. –DX2
