Who Do I See in the Mirror? is simple yet powerful book about a sweet little girl, Philly, who goes through a journey of discovering what makes her truly special. It reminds children to love who they are and that they are much more than their physical appearance.

“The little girl, Philly, has so much self-love, it’s contagious.”

This gorgeous, colour-illustrated book concludes with a strong message that it’s what is on the inside that counts. A wonderful finishing touch is that it ends with a certificate that each child can hang up on their wall.

This hardback picture book serves as a beautiful keepsake for a newborn, toddler or preschooler.

As Philly looks at her reflection in the mirror, she realises that from her curly hair to her legs that love to dance, she is unique. But what makes her truly special is her good heart and curious mind. The important message conveyed is for children to love the skin they are in. It’s what you are on the inside that matters most.

The book that keeps giving. Each book purchased sponsors a book into the hands of an underprivileged child.

“I love this beautiful book! I cannot wait to include it in my classroom library! The Little girl has so much self-love and it made my heart so happy to read!” -The Multicultural Classroom

 “What I love about Who Do I See in the Mirror? is that the book isn’t just about the cute little brown girl in the mirror–it’s about the reader learning all his/her body parts and loving them for what they are too. And it’s about learning to love others who may not look like them. There’s so much subtext in the reading, without hitting over the reader’s heads. And I think that kids of all ages, from the just learning to talk, to the learning to read, to the proficient reader will understand the concepts at multiple levels.”
