Is It Any Good?

The delicate issue of body image becomes a wonderful focus on kindness, expressed in lovely, plain language easy for young readers to understand. Beautifully Me takes an issue that's often difficult to talk about honestly and turns it into a positive conversation, augmented by artist Nabi's colorful, expressive illustrations. What's lovely is how Zubi's family responds: full of kindness and an awareness of how their words impact others, and a clear message that beauty is found in how we make other people feel and the things we do as we move through the world together.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
