The World Needs Who You Were Made to Be

We rated this book:


Children gather on a lush hilltop. Supplies are circulated and construction begins on what will soon fill the sky with brilliance. With hard work, originality, and resourcefulness, they are well on their way to manufacturing a collage of majestic hot-air balloons. Each one labors at a different pace and has preferences of his or her own, but all their contributions are significant. The creativeness of one, the extravagance of another, they’re both meaningful and needed. It’s these differences, that when celebrated and pulled together, make the world a better place and fill the horizon with hope and magnificence.

This is a splendid, thoughtful picture book that emphasizes the beauty of togetherness, the gift of ingenuity, and the value of each individual. No one is insignificant; each person has his or her own role to play in this vast universe with, no one being more necessary or important than another.

The World Needs Who You Were Made to Be will appeal to youth ages five to nine. The realistic, detailed illustrations will awaken their senses and tap into their curiosity. The images are unique and perfectly compliment the text; the two combine to produce masterful work.

Educators will find this a wonderful resource for teaching cooperation and kindness. The characters are diverse in ethnicity, creating an overall aura of inclusiveness. Additionally, the depth of the message conveyed makes it prime material for extrapolating purpose and meaning from the narrative.
