Youngsters will enjoy the catchiness of the text and the lively nature of the illustrations, while appreciating the concepts found within....A good choice to help children consider similarities and differences. (Kirkus)
The combination of the colorful, jewel-like objects and affirmative messages is likely to make this book as popular as Kranz’s first, which has a loyal following. (Publishers Weekly)
You Be You brings a whole new level of excitement to painted rocks. A rounded, smooth rock is a limited canvas, but Kranz’s design and the variety of patterns on the rocks makes the book worthwhile before you even read a single word. I looked through the entire book and marveled at the painting and design before I went back to read it. (Raising Arizona Kids)
With its universal theme that life is the greatest journey of all as well as its celebration of the differences between all creatures, You Be You offers a positive message to readers of all ages. In addition, parents can share with their children the homilies featured on the endpapers and children can search for Adri swimming among the other fish. These features, plus Kranz’s whimsical illustrations, ensure that You Be You will be an instant favorite of young and emergent readers or anyone looking for a little encouragement during trying times. (Vegbooks)
With its strong positive message, You Be You is an ideal choice for parents to read to young children at storytime or bedtime. (Midwest Book Review)
...[A] fun book with a valuable lesson. (Northern Arizona's Mountain Living Magazine)
Named one of Huffington Post's 50 Inspiring Children's Books with a Positive Message. (The Huffington Post)
From the Author
In Only One You Adri's Papa and Mama share with him the wisdom they have learned in their lives. The reader will find either Mama or Papa or both Mama and Papa floating on the pages.
Now in You Be You Adri's adventure continues.
Join Adri as he is out discovering the world on his own. Look for Adri swimming among all the coloful fish.
In this story I wanted the reader to feel comfortable about who they are. We are all different. We have our own talents and we should develope our unique gifts and share them with the world. The message is to be yourself.
Just like the end sheets in Only One You more wisdom and encouragement spills onto the front and back inside covers of You Be You.
I want my stories to speak to all ages.
After reading a story I love to close the book with a smile.
Thank you, for taking the time to read "From the Author."
