From the Author
It's never too soon to start making a difference, and these stories are exhilarating examples of power in action to make for ideal motivation.
The book also contains fifty positive affirmations, and I encourage you to say them aloud with your child every day. This is a powerful way to boost their self-esteem.
As parents and educators, there are three important things that we can give to our children: good memories, a good education, and a sense of self-worth.I've created this book to help you to achieve these goals.

It is so important to have role models in life. L. A. Amber offers possible examples to fill in those role models. These 50 people showing 50 awesome examples of the power everyone has in him or herself. Beside that, the author ended every story with a personal note to the reader. "Did you know that...? Have you ever felt rejected? Keep dreaming big dreams. Are you patient with others? Do you ever feel like giving up? Do you learn from your mistakes? What do you dream of doing to change the world? Each of us has a special mission or purpose, you matter, you are important, don't ever forget that..."
The combination of the stories together with those personal questions to the readers (it is a children's book, but it speaks to adults as well) make this book extra-ordinary. It is fun to read, one can learn from it. It also is a sort of self-help book because the right questions are asked in every of the 50 stories. I am sure this is a book that will enlarge the self esteem of many children (and again, I think of BIG children as well). It is an important book for every black girl and boy, parent friend and teacher. It is important for everyone of every skin color.
This is a book that, if I could, I would give 6 stars.
So well done,
one open (double) page on each person, from all over world, not just USA.
The kids I got this for were transfixed.
The artwork is gorgeous and very creative.
It is fun to also go over the wonderful paintings of the amazing black people on the front and back covers, to see who all in the room can name these people on the covers.
