Just Because I Am

A Child’s Book of Affirmation

$11.99 / $14.99

Young children need support and encouragement as they learn to value themselves and recognize their own worth—“not because of the things I do, not because of what I look like, not because of what I have . . . just because I am.” This book of sweet, simple affirmations for children helps them respect their bodies, acknowledge their own needs, and name their feelings. Just Because I Am invites little ones to love, accept, and feel good about themselves exactly as they are. A special section for parents, teachers, and caregivers includes activities and discussion questions to use with children.

Praise for Just Because I Am
“Simple but empowering . . . teaches children to trust their bodies, that all of their feelings are OK, and that they have the power to say ‘No’ to anything that feels dangerous or wrong.”—Chicago Tribune
