Your Special Voice

Illustrated by Keisha Okafor

About The Book

This empowering board book inspires young readers to use their own special voice to make a difference in the world.

If you want to make a difference,
but you don’t know where to start
Begin by searching way deep down
to find what’s in your heart

Whether your voice shines through singing, drawing, or dancing—whether it’s soft or loud, kind or proud—everyone has a voice that can effect change. This empowering and heartfelt message is conveyed through beautiful, lyrical rhyme that will encourage even the youngest readers to think about what’s important to them.
