Only You Can Be You Book description:

Some kids like to dance and laugh out loud, and some sit quietly and make up stories in their heads—but we’re all different, and that’s okay because the maker of everything made us this way!

In their first picture book, bestselling author Sally Clarkson and her son Nathan encourage children on the journey to discovering their strengths. Mother and son duo draw on themes from their first book, Different, the emotive story of Nathan’s experiences growing up with mental illness and learning disabilities and Sally’s journey to loving him unconditionally. With the powerful truth that what makes you different makes you great, Only You Can Be You will help children embrace their differences and celebrate the differences in others.

The irresistible rhymes paired with Tim Warnes’s whimsical illustrations encourage your children with the reassurance they’re looking for in their own uniqueness. Whether they are quiet or artistic, funny or boisterous, your children will love this heartwarming read that assures them that they’re wonderful exactly as they are.


WOW! I love, love this sweet childrens book! And I love the theme, and the journey authors  Sally and her son Nathan Clarkson takes readers on explanning how God makes us all different. And He makes us all great.

I love reviewing awesome children’s books like this because of the importance of teaching our children about God. This book goes a step farther by teaching our children that it’s ok to be different. Our God makes everyone special and unique. And we are perfectly made because it is God who made us. And He makes NO mistakes.

And I can’t leave out the awesome illustrations by Tim Warnes. Each page is filled with unique pictures that are fun, enlightening, enjoyable, and are created just right to catch the eye of every child that sees the book. This is sure one that your child or children will be snatching from the store shelves. I very highly recommend this adorable hard cover book.
