We always ask kids, " What do you want to BE when you grow up?" They always respond with "firefighter, astronaut, teacher, and doctor." And that's what we expect to hear from that question. But this book encourages kids to BE humble humans and just plain good people. Be challenges kids to think bigger than a profession when asked "what do you want to be." The author encourages all kids to BE unique. BE accepting. BE courageous. Be kind to ALL. With simple wording and a profound message, "Be" allows children to see themselves within the pages, and sparks engaging conversations around celebrating unique differences and accepting and including all. The vibrant colors throughout the illustrations highlight positive character traits, such as, thoughtfulness, gratitude, and confidence. A valuable lesson from infancy to adulthood.
