Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calling all girls....important message for you This book is an ideal one to build up your little girl's self-esteem. When your child is faced with bullying or "not fitting in" because she is not pretty enough this is the book to reach for to start a conversation about your child's uniqueness. This leads to the perfect opportunity to tell her how special she is and why you think she is just right the way she is, a beautiful creation to be celebrated. Julia, on her recess break, faces sandbox divas who won't allow her to play with them because she isn't wearing nail polish and because of that they are more pretty. Very disturbed by their remarks Julia gets off the bus and talks to her mom about maybe painting her nails so she will be accepted by those girls and then asks her mom the question, "Am I pretty?" Her wise mother assures and inspires Julia with these words, "Julia, you are pretty smart...And you are pretty strong...pretty kind...and pretty brave... and pretty amazing. I love everything about you. But 'pretty' is too small a word to describe you. You will always be so much more than pretty." These healing words flow from her mother's heart to her daughter's assuring her she is perfect just the way she is. They empower Julia to go back to school the next day to face her bullies with the reassurance that she isn't just pretty she is way beyond that and even more. With or without nail polish...(and that choice is totally up to her not forced upon her by peer pressure) she is a "pretty" cool kid and she now has the self-confidence to prove it. The illustrations are bright, colourful, happy and expressive.
