Designer, businesswoman, author, and mom Joanna Gaines’ latest book celebrates diversity, personal acceptance and conveys the following: you are perfect just the way you are and have much to contribute to society, making it even more beautiful.

Her second children’s book, “The World Needs Who You Were Made to Be,” was released during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic – at a time when children need reminded brighter days are ahead, especially when we come alongside one another.

The story, featuring cute and colorful illustrations by Julianna Swaney, follows children of different races and work styles as they team together to create something extraordinary – vibrant hot-air balloons.

No matter the varying areas the children excel in – including carpentry, science, and creativity – the group needs everyone using their talents so they can take flight. “Together is how we grow,” the story shares.

Once up in the air – the joint effort paying off – the book reinforces “how beautiful it can be when our differences share the same sky.”

With children flying among the clouds, filling uniquely patterned hot-air balloons, Gaines poetically tells young ones everyone can be “kind, compassionate, gracious, helpful, considerate and courageous.”

The children in this story go on such a lovely adventure, learning as they go the importance of championing everyone for their strengthens and differences.

This book is sure to encourage your child to soar like only he or she can. Help remind young ones they can reach new heights simply by being who they “were made to be!”

About her book, which hit shelves the end of 2020, Gaines stated on social media, “I want my new children’s book to say the very thing that I needed to hear as a kid, and that I want my kids to hear and know deep in their bones, and that I hope your kids will hear and believe, too: the world needs who you were made to be – with all of the kindness and strength and unique qualities that make you who you are.”

“The World Needs Who You Were Made to Be” now is available for purchase online at Christian Books, Target, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon.
