I Can Be Pretty
by Edward L. Holmes
Author and poet Edward Holmes brings a read-out-loud lyrical letter for all girls who dare to dream.
"I Can Be Pretty" celebrates the reality that they are "pretty incredible" against pervasive messages of external validation. Skin tones, body shape, and fashion could never supersede how perfectly made our daughters truly are without modification.
This book sends the perfect message to all the little girls out there. I am so glad I have a book like this to share with my daughter. The book first talks about what ifs. What if my hair is too curly? What if I had to wear braces or glasses? What if I was short? What if my clothes were unpopular? This brings attention to superficial things that people are typically worried about. Then the book lets girls know that they can be pretty… Intelligent, pretty… Creative, innovative, compassionate, inspiring, and more. It sends the right message that people don’t need to focus on their looks, but rather their inner beauty and the wonderful things they can accomplish and what kind of person they can really be. This would make a great book gift for a special little girl in your life.
