New Children's Book Inspires Kids to Be Happy with Who They Are

As children grow up, they will face various challenges and struggles, author Karen Stone wants to make sure a negative self-image will not be one of those issues. Therefore, this children's author presents "Just Be Yourself: A Ladybug's Journey," to help children build a positive perception of self.

In "Just Be Yourself," Stone introduces readers to a unique story that follows an unsure ladybug in the Happy Peaceful Forest. The ladybug questions why she is the only one in her family without a special crown and sets out to reach the shiny purple castle to find her answers.

Along the way, she meets various animals that impart lessons of self-assurance and empowerment. At the end of her journey, she realizes that in order to receive her crown, she simply needs to find confidence and happiness in her own heart.

"I want to enable children to build a foundation to be happy with who they are for the rest of their lives," Stone said. "Just Be Yourself teaches children to be confident with their own attributes, skills and appearance so they can build a positive self-image."
