I received an advance review audiobook for free and am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you Meena Harris and Rockstar Book Tours and Publicity. I'm excited to be a part of this tour.

Book mail really is the best mail! My physical copy of this book arrived today, and I couldn’t be more excited! I am a HUGE fan of the Harris women and Meena is no exception. I love them and what they represent so much, I jumped at the chance to be a part of this tour!

This book is amazing. Today, I’m a proud feminist and this book gave me all the feels. But that wasn’t always the case. I grew up in a time when being a feminist wasn’t a good thing. Not to mention, my family is conservative. It wasn’t until I went to college and found my voice that I realized the power of women when we fully embrace ourselves without placing limitations on ourselves.

This book is unique, I loved that they went A-Z using words commonly used to describe and undermine our sense of selves and reframed them in a positive light. The illustrations are gorgeous and brought the story to life. The book is full of excitement and an I can do anything frame of mind which I found to be contagious. I couldn’t’ stop smiling as I read this. The message is also a great conversation started with your little one. This is the second in the series. I’d love to see it in every classroom as well as public libraries.

I’m hooked on Mena’s books and have already ordered the rest of her books. I can’t wait to read more from her!
