Who Do I See in the Mirror? is a simple yet powerful book written to introduce children to the concept of self-love and acceptance. It explores the various parts of the body, making the idea of self-discovery exciting for children while encouraging them to love each part. It reminds children that they are much more than their physical appearance. This gorgeous, colour-illustrated book concludes with a strong message that it’s what is on the inside that counts. A wonderful finishing touch is that it ends with a certificate that each child can hang up on their wall.
BOOK SYNOPSIS: There is only one me. As Philly looks at her reflection in the mirror, she realizes that from her curly hair to her legs that love to dance, she is unique. But what makes her truly special is her good heart and curious mind. The important message conveyed is for children to love the skin they are in. It’s what you are on the inside that matters most.
SOCIAL IMPACT: Philly & Friends is a contemporary children’s brand created to empower literacy. Each book sold sponsors into the hands of an underprivileged child.
REVIEW: “What I love about Who Do I See in the Mirror? is that the book isn’t just about the cute little brown girl in the mirror–it’s about the reader learning all his/her body parts and loving them for what they are too. And it’s about learning to love others who may not look like them. There’s so much subtext in the reading, without hitting over the reader’s heads. And I think that kids of all ages, from the just learning to talk, to the learning to read, to the proficient reader will understand the concepts at multiple levels.”
