One of the photos is of a little girl who has curly hair just like her. That photo was of her grandma Maddie.

Curlee Girlee by Atara Twersky Book review

The book is trying to teach a lesson to kids who think they are different and want to be like other kids. This is all too common and kids needs to feel like they fit in and even if they are different from maybe their family members or friends in some way, that their differences are what makes them unique and special.

The illustrations in this kid’s storybook are amazing and vibrant. The story hits home with so many girls who think they need to be just like everyone else to be important.
