I Am Smart, I Am Blessed, I Can Do Anything!

Written by Alissa Holder & Zulekha Holder-Young, Illustrated by Nneka Myers

Well written and beautifully illustrated story of a special bond/relationship the young boy has with his mother.

The positivity of encouragement the young boy receives from various friends on his way to school is heartwarming. The words of affirmation that he and his mother say together has such an impact on how this young boy’s day at school will play out. This book has a very powerful message of who you are, and who you are not, building up one’s self esteem and self-worth. Great read for young and old. I also really liked the multicultural characters.
