In Sam Says: You Are Born to Shine, readers learn the power of expressing their true selves.

I received an advance review book for free and am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you Sam Hirschmann and iRead Book Tours. I'm excited to be a part of this tour!

Wow! What an incredible story! I love Sam and I love Sam’s mom. Everyone needs a mom like Sam’s. My favorite quote from this book is “You just have to live from your heart and don’t let anyone tear you apart. Don’t ever dim your light, as you should always shine bright.” This quote resonates with me because it reminds me of my favorite Ralph Waldo Emerson quote of being myself no matter how much the world tries to change me. I am obviously paraphrasing here and can’t say enough great things about this book and its message.

In Sam Says You Are Born to Shine, we meet 9-year-old Sam who is about to go to a new school. Sam is fearless and isn’t afraid to be herself. She wears bright colors and dances to the beat of her own boom box. At first, her classmates aren’t sure what to make of her, but it looks like she is having fun. She has a huge smile on her face and invites them to join along.  By the end all her classmates are dancing along.

This book is well written and will bring a smile to your youngster’s face. The illustrations are gorgeous. Not only does Sam dress in bright colors, but the world also seems brighter with her around. I also enjoyed the rhymes throughout the book. I highly recommend this book to all young readers and would love to see this book on every bookshelf!
