A Beautiful Girl Like You is a heart-warming book that celebrates diversity and encourages readers to see and appreciate the unique beauty within themselves and others.
By highlighting a variety of personality traits, talents, and passions as well as touching on external features, we can see through this book how delightfully different girls can be. The charming rhyme and sweet illustrations will inspire little girls and big girls alike to value what makes them unique and the part they can play in making the world a more wonderful place. “Bring beauty to the world by just being you.”
The first time I read through this book I fell in love with it. Each page describes different attributes of a “beautiful girl”, something like this:
“A beautiful girl has skin that is fair.
Whatever she’s blessed with she wants to share.
She is a giver of gifts and keeps others in mind.
She likes to do things that are thoughtful and kind.”
The first line of every page describes a physical attribute of the girl in the picture on that page. Besides the fair-skinned girl, there are girls with dark-skin and with skin like desert sands, girls with just about every hair colour and style, girls with freckles, tall and petite girls, and even a girl with a scarf on her head with apparently no hair at all.
But the important thing is that after that first descriptive line, there are several lines about beautiful girls being kind, loving, and a whole variety of various attributes about each of the girls.
The key is at the end of the book when the author states,
“A beautiful girl is any girl at all.
It’s not only external it’s every girl’s call.
If you are a girl you are beautiful too.
Bring beauty to the world by just being you!”
