I LOVE BEING ME is Released
by BWW News Desk - Nov 23, 2016

When you look in the mirror, do you like what you see? Liberty Belle does. A rather precocious child, Libby, as she is called, has a joy for life and a level of self-confidence that is contagious. Just ask her friends, a diverse collection of little girls, each with their own unique value, that have come together to have fun and enjoy life. 'I Love Being Me' is a joyful, positive book that will encourage readers to celebrate humanity in all its colors. 'Throughout my life, I have had the opportunity to travel and live in a variety of countries around the globe,' said author April Allen. 'I have seen first-hand the benefits of diversity. When one has been exposed to a diversity of people they tend to be more well-rounded, better communicators and in turn better leaders. When I became a mother I knew that I wanted to raise my Daughters to accept and celebrate the differences that we all have. From this desire was born Liberty Belle, a fun and colorful character who happily points out her friend's unique differences, while emphatically declaring she loves everything about herself.' Each of the friends that Libby meets in the book 'I Love Being Me' are actually a composite of some of the wonderful people that have been in April's life from elementary school through law school and beyond. She wanted to honor the friends that have been an inspiration in her real life. 'My hope is that as parents are reading the story of Libby and her friends to their children that it will spark some interesting conversation,' said Allen. 'I wanted to create a story that allows children and parents to have important discussions in a healthy, fun and loving way. God created us all and loves us all, no matter our background, color, or ability and hopefully 'I Love Being Me' will help foster that inclusive behavior in our readers. 'This is such a special book,' said Lisa Umina, founder and president of Halo Publishing International. 'Liberty Belle is a great voice for the next generation as she embraces different ethnicities and races while celebrating who she is and her own uniqueness.' 'I Love Being Me' is available from: * Halo Publishing * Amazon * Barnes and Noble Get your copy in paperback for $10.95 or as a e-book for $6.95. About April Allen: April Allen lives outside Portland, Oregon with her wonderful husband and two young Daughters. April loves to learn, travel and to try new adventures! She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Master of Public Administration degree from the University of Washington. She also holds a Juris Doctor degree from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. April has traveled the world extensively and lived in several countries such as, Guatemala, England, Japan, and Spain. Some of her adventures include, climbing Mt. Fuji in Japan and Acatenango in Guatemala, and trekking the Great Wall of China. April consults and educates institutions on matters of diversity and inclusion.
