Children's Book THE BEAUTIFUL THINGS THAT I LOVE ABOUT ME Promotes Self Respect

The children's book "The Beautiful Things That I Love About Me" is a children's book that features young actress/model Yanna Buttons and promotes self respect and self love in an age where most media promotes the opposite.

Several years ago, an experiment was done, using a white doll and a black doll, where kids were asked the simple questions "Which is pretty and which is ugly?" "Which is smart and which is dumb?" and "which is good and which is bad?"

It was bad enough that most children considered the black doll to be ugly, dumb and bad. What was worst was that most black children and children of color also considered the black doll to be ugly, dumb, and bad.

This is a problem that many say comes from the images that are seen in music videos, TV shows, the news, reality shows and more. Of course, there are some positive images, however according to studies, there needs to be more positive images for girls, especial black and brown girls. It was for this reason that "The Beautiful Things That I love About Me" was written.

Utilizing the talented five-year old actress/model Yanna Buttons, the book teaches these young girls to look at themselves and discover all the beautiful things about themselves - from their skin, to their eyes, to their hair and so much more.

"The Beautiful Things That I Love About me" is a book that every school and every parent (especially parents of black and brown children) should have, said Renita Shepard, Yanna's Mother.
