What better message to share with a child than Why not you? You're strong, you're important and you belong! And, who better to deliver it than inspirational pop star Ciara and Super Bowl champion Russell Wilson? Jessica Gibson's illustrations (A Night at the Bookstore: A Barnsie & Noble Adventure) are the perfect complement to help every child see that their possibilities are limitless.
Why not you? Amazing you! You’re a winner! You’re so strong! You are perfect and important—you and all your gifts belong!
We all have big dreams! Sometimes it’s hard to imagine our big dreams coming true. But what if someone saw all the amazing and spectacular parts of us—our winning smiles, our fancy feet, our warm hearts—and asked, “Why not you?”
Whether it’s becoming a football player or a pop star or the president or a scientist: Why not you?
In this picture book debut, superstars Ciara and Russell Wilson encourage readers to see themselves achieving their dreams, no matter how outrageous they may seem. It’s a lyrical celebration of self-esteem, perseverance, and daring to shoot for the stars.
