REVIEW: I Am Enough by Grace Byers
Illustrated by Keturah A. Bobo
A New York Times bestseller and Goodreads Choice Awards picture book winner!
This is a gorgeous, lyrical ode to loving who you are, respecting others, and being kind to one another—from Empire actor and activist Grace Byers and talented newcomer artist Keturah A. Bobo.
This is the perfect gift for mothers and daughters, baby showers, and graduation.
We are all here for a purpose. We are more than enough. We just need to believe it.
The illustrations are the best part of this short book about diversity, inclusion, and accepting that you are fine any way you are. The text is okay but not that memorable in the long run since there isn’t really a story line to follow. I wonder if younger readers might be confused some of the meaning of the lines.
“Like the rain, I’m here to pour
and drip and fall until I’m full.”
“Like the water, here to swell.
Like the fire, here to burn.”
But the pictures – yeah, they’re good. B-
