It's OK to be Me!
by Sherry J. Kubalsky

“I want to be . . .”

Young animals think about how they want to be different. The monkey wants to be a turtle. The squirrel wants to be a giraffe. The bird wants to be a lion. But when their mothers remind them how special they are as themselves, the little animals remember: “It’s OK to Be Me!”

With empowering messages of self-acceptance, It’s OK to Be Me! reminds young readers that God created them to be okay just as they are.
