Synopsis

You Be You by Linda Kranz

When Adri sets out to explore the ocean, he has no idea how colorful the world is. He quickly discovers that there are all kinds of fish in the deep blue sea-big and tiny, smooth and spiny, colorful and plain, different and the same. Join Adri as he travels the ever changing currents of the ocean and see if you can find your favorite rockfish among the waves!

Kirkus The combination of the colorful, jewel-like objects and affirmative messages is likely to make this book as popular as Kranz's first, which has a loyal following. Publishers Weekly You Be You brings a whole new level of excitement to painted rocks. A rounded, smooth rock is a limited canvas, but Kranz's design and the variety of patterns on the rocks makes the book worthwhile before you even read a single word. I looked through the entire book and marveled at the painting and design before I went back to read it. Raising Arizona Kids With its universal theme that life is the greatest journey of all as well as its celebration of the differences between all creatures, You Be You offers a positive message to readers of all ages.

These features, plus Kranz's whimsical illustrations, ensure that You Be You will be an instant favorite of young and emergent readers or anyone looking for a little encouragement during trying times. Vegbooks With its strong positive message, You Be You is an ideal choice for parents to read to young children at storytime or bedtime. Midwest Book Review ...[A] fun book with a valuable lesson.
