Congratulations to Shelina Janmohamed, whose new children’s book BeYOUtiful: Radiate Confidence, Celebrate Difference and Express Yourself is published by Welbeck Children’s today, and is the Love Reading book of the month for May.
BeYOUtiful is about feeling extraordinary, radiating confidence, and celebrating diversity in how we look. Young readers will learn about self esteem and body image, how beauty has changed throughout history and beauty in difference. It explores how media and society presents beauty and gives constructive advice on how to be yourself, giving readers the tools to look critically at what they are shown, form their own opinions and build their confidence.
The book delivers an important, empowering and positive message, while also focusing on beauty across many different ethnicities, religions and races throughout history to today, providing a modern and diverse look at the topic.
