Embrace people’s differences with Karen O. Roberts’s empowering debut children’s book, Look at You! You Are Beautiful.
Brimming with vibrant pictures of kids from all walks of life, this charming collection stands in stark contrast to defeat the looks-obsessed culture in which children grow up today.
Instead of focusing on physical beauty, Look at You! You Are Beautiful celebrates everyone’s uniqueness in a way that is easy, fun, and educational for readers of any age.
Karen O. Roberts was born in 1971 in a small town in the only English speaking country in South America, Guyana. As a child, she often felt awkward, too tall, too skinny, and too dark-skinned. However, at eight years old, someone told her “Look at you! You are beautiful”—and from that moment on, she developed a new attitude toward herself. It was this attitude that inspired her debut children’s book, Look at You! You Are Beautiful.
She moved to St. Lucia (Caribbean) the birthplace of her grandparents, when she was nineteen. Roberts lives with her husband and son outside Gothenburg, Sweden since 2000. She enjoys reading, traveling, staying fit and spending time with her family.
