Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

Sometimes we feel out of sorts and feel that we are different from all the others around us.  Ever felt that way?  The answer may be that you are different because you are special! 

This funny interactive book is a quiz that asks questions to the reader to determine if they might have that "special quality".  It poses multiple silly questions to discover if perhaps the reader might be a unicorn, a dragon, a werewolf or even a mermaid, just to name a few.    Kids will uncover that they are none of these but are unique, one of a kind, and indeed special all on their own!  Kids are enabled to celebrate their differences and no longer compare themselves and feel like a misfit. 

The illustrations are wonderful, full of expression and playfulness! The positive message of the book blends goofy humour with a message of self-acceptance and reinforces a positive self-image.  "You Might Be Special"  is a perfect read-aloud and kids will love the interaction as they respond to the silly questions and learn that they are perfect just the way they are. I highly recommend this book.
