BECAUSE YOU ARE

HarperCollins Canada

A picture book written as a letter to the author's younger self, capturing hard-earned lessons about growing up, being joyful, and loving yourself as a young Black girl. By exploring what inner beauty means, this story inspires children to recognize and build their self-worth, to dream big, and to make a difference in the world. Text by Jael Richardson, represented by Carly Watters at P.S. Literary Agency.
