Each child in this book comes from a different background. You will see diversity among the children and even diversity in how they choose to dress and live their lives. It is so important that every child be able to open up a book and find themselves on the pages of their favorite books.

This book is available in board book (for children birth - 3 years young). Our board books make wonderful baby shower and new baby gifts! They are also wildly popular in preschools around the world and toddlers are absolutely loving this book!

This book is available in paperback (for children 4 years - 9 years young). The benefit to purchasing a paperback book is that they include additional work pages at the back of the book. As a teacher and mom myself, I feel that providing my readers with Activity Pages and Inspiration/Discussion Pages is a beneficial way to inspire positive conversations in homes and schools around the world. Let us work together to make this world a kinder, more accepting, and more respectful place.
This book is available in hardcover (COMING SOON DECEMBER 2020) (All ages - A treasure to have for the rest of your life and generations to come).

All of my books can be treasured for a lifetime!

Why should we teach our children to stand tall and be proud?

Every single one of us is unique and different than the rest. We must teach our children the importance of not giving up. The importance of working hard and trying your best, and what that really looks like. It looks difficult at times. It looks like sweat and tears, but the outcome of working hard and believing in yourself… that is priceless. I speak to my children about being okay with not being okay. About never giving up and taking breaks when they need, but believing in themselves enough to keep on going. I speak to my children about working hard and also playing hard. About taking care of their bodies and feeding themselves healthy choices. But I also have taught them that ice cream sundaes in waffle cones are definitely delicious too. Life is all about the balance. And it is up to us to teach our children the reality of things and that they will be okay no matter what. As long as they believe.

Be Who You Were Meant To Be will get the conversations started about sharing with friends, being proud of others for their success, being confident in who you are, reaching for the stars, finding the rainbows on rainy days, and setting goals and achieving them.

When you add Be Who You Were Meant To Be to your child’s bookshelf, you are providing your child with a book full of life lessons that they will take with them as they grow up. And they will thank you for it!

  1. Love is Love. This book reminds kids that they are special because of their uniqueness. You can't read this book without feeling love. Read this to your children before bedtime and send them off to be knowing they are loved because of who they are. This is such a beautiful book for your child or to give as a gift. I'm so in love with the story that I'm going to buy all this author has written. Makes a lovely baby shower gift too.

  2. I absolutely love this book for young children! All of Lauren's books have great messages that are important to instill at young ages. Start these conversations early and just imagine the positive outcome for this generation! The themes of believing in yourself, acceptance, diversity, self-worth, etc are prevalent in all of her stories. Even if you don't have young kids, these make beautiful gifts for baby showers, birthdays and holidays!
