BE YOUR OWN BEST FRIEND FOREVER!
A confidence-building book for young girls, particularly those from a diverse community or heritage.
Be Your Own Best Friend FOREVER! is packed with inspiring tips for any girl who doubts herself or is the subject of exclusion or body shaming. Jayla, the confident young person sharing her advice, takes pride in being African American, Native American, Asian American, and Latina. She steers readers away from negative self-talk with proven strategies.
If kids are mean to you, make new friends. If a TV program tells you to change how you look, change the channel! Replace negative talk with positive talk the Jayla way by rejecting the voice of self-doubt and self-hate with the voice of self-love and light. With engaging illustrations and Jayla’s great facial expressions, the reader will come to realize that once she believes in herself, she will always have a best friend!
Jayla, the inspiration for the book, is the niece of the author.
