About the Book:Inspired by her own four children, Marianne wrote I Believe In You because we all want to know we have someone who truly believes in us, no matter what life is dishing out.
Your job of growing up
takes hard work, I know,
but each day is an adventure.
Each problem helps you grow.
Growing up can be a topsy-turvy journey from schoolwork, friendships, fitting in, and standing out. When children of any age know that they have a fan, they feel more confident to problem sole, endure, and succeed.
Whether it’s sunny or stormy,
whether you’re happy or blue,
I’m here to say, without a doubt,
That I believe in you!
I Believe in You encourages kids to look within to find they have all they need to succeed—and to know they always have someone cheering them on.
About the Author:Marianne Richmond turned a personal tragedy into a motivational vehicle, becoming an award-winning author and selling over a million books in the process.
Her career was launched by accident; she was diagnosed with a brain tumor (thankfully benign), the cause of numerous epileptic seizures through her childhood. During her five-week recovery period, Marianne created hand-painted thank you cards for her many well-wishers. With Jim’s, her new boyfriend, and friend’s encouragement, she decided to launch her own greeting card business, Marianne Richmond Studios, Inc. As distribution for her cards increased, she decided to try her hand at writing a book, honoring her biggest fan, her now-husband Jim, with The Gift of an Angel.
Beginning with her first book in 1997, Gift of An Angel, writer and artist Marianne has touched the lives of millions over the past decade through her line of greeting cards and gift books. Since then she has become a recognized creator of numerous books that celebrate milestones in life, memorable journeys, and relationships. Marianne currently lives in Minneapolis, MN with her even-keeled husband, Jim, their four kids, and their senior citizen Border Collie, Clay. Find out more at her website www.mariannerichmond.com
My OpinionI am a huge fan of Marianna Richmond's books and illustrations! (see my previous review of another one of her books, The Night Night Book)
Her illustrations are so fun and colorful and my son loves to look at the pictures and listen along as I tell him that I will be proud of him throughout his life!
This book has such a positive, beautiful message that I want my son to always remember and the fun rhyming words make it easy and fun to read!
I recommend I Believe in You book for all parents to read to all their children! It is a great reminder not only to your children, but to you, as parents, to always let your children know they are special and you will be proud of them through the hard and good times!
