Hooray for You! A Celebration of “You-ness” by: Marianne Richmond
Hooray for You!: A Celebration of "You-ness" is a delightful and recommended picturebook that teaches very young readers a lifelong lesson: to take pride in themselves, rather than degrade their own esteem in a futile quest to copy someone else's individuality. Bold, full-color illustrations in the style of what a preschooler could draw with crayons or paints drive the point home: that each of us is a unique individual, and that uniqueness is to be celebrated. The simple text is written entirely in charming, singsong rhyme.
