Review by Stacey

Proud to Be Me by Kim Farrell is a children’s picture book about body confidence and feeling comfortable in your own skin whilst recognising that everyone is different.

The story is told in a rhyming style and features a bee called Buzz and his friends who are all very different. From a tall giraffe called George to a short alligator called Al and a hippo called Hope who doesn’t like her skin.

I loved this book. It is wonderful to read a children’s book that is about teaching little ones that everyone is unique and that it is good to be different and that they should love their bodies. I’m a big believer in teaching children these types of things whilst they are young so that they grow up with that knowledge embedded within them.

The illustrations are full-page, bright, colourful, and really pop off the page. They emphasise the text fully and showcase the animals and their wonderful bodies perfectly.

Proud to Be Me is an amazing book. It is simple to read, yet contains a powerful message. This would be the perfect book to have in a school library or for a class read. It is touching and relatable and I hope that children embrace the message fully. At the back of the book, there are activities for children and messages for adults where they can get free resources to go along with the teachings in the book.
