Empower kids to explore the world inside themselves and let their imaginations take flight!
You are COLORFUL like a Rainbow after a storm.
You are BRAVE as a Butterfly spreading its wings.
You are a force of nature.
This board book encourages kids ages 1-3 to be curious about the world around them and to recognize the same brave, playful, colorful, and crabby qualities found in animals and nature within themselves.
Discovering these qualities can pique their curiosity about the world around them while giving them a sense of richness and confidence about who they are. Beginning with the shining sun, each page intentionally shifts the energy to bring the child to a state of rest and ease at the end of the book, ready for sleep.
