Review: Fantastic You
This book is full of love and kindness, the same love and kindness we often show to others, but sometimes forget to show ourselves.
Fantastic You is by the team who created You Are Your Strong, author, Danielle Dufayet, illustrator, Jennifer Zivoin, and publisher, Magination Press (Books for Kids From the American Psychological Association).
Dufayet's text is confident and assured, relating common childhood experiences and emotions in a way that is accepting of all, and encouraging. The illustrations by Zivoin beautifully convey the light and shadows, ups and downs, and round and rounds of childhood and life, with family, friends, and always with ourselves.
This beautiful book also contains notes for parents and caregivers, by psychologist, Dr Julia Martin Burch, PhD, to assist with continuing the positive approach reflected in this story.
