By William Campbell
One of life’s biggest lessons is allowing yourself to follow your own path and to recognize what makes you special. The lucky few recognize this as children, but many of us are adults before we realize we don’t have to do what everyone else is doing!
Through his delightful new book, Remember, Just Be You, William Campbell helps parents and children understand it’s ok to be “different” and to follow your own path. Readers follow character Mark through his first few weeks at a new school as he struggles with fitting in and feeling like he can’t do anything right.
Mark doesn’t enjoy sports, cannot play an instrument, is ignored at recess, has not learned how to ride a bike and doesn’t look like other kids. Mark doesn’t even have a puppy and now he’s not sure he wants to continue going to school. After all, he doesn’t feel like he belongs anywhere. Luckily for Mark, his parents understand and keep reminding him he can work on what he cannot do and to always, “Just be you!”
Thoughtfully written and beautifully illustrated, Remember, Just Be You, inspires adults and children to embrace:
- Being different – we are all special and unique
- Acceptance – true friends will always accept you
- Unique talents – we all have hidden talents, we just have to discover what they are
- Patience – with ourselves and finding those who accept us for who we are
- Determination – never give up on yourself
