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.
Karen 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.
Karen moved to St. Lucia (Caribbean) the birthplace of her grandparents, when she was nineteen. She currently lives with her husband and son outside Gothenburg, Sweden since 2000 and enjoys reading, traveling, staying fit and spending time with her family.
ABOUT THE BOOK
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.By representing children of every background—including those who are black or white, with curly hair or straight, blue eyes or brown, tall stature or short, and everything in between—Karen helps broadcast a positive message that builds optimism and confidence for all kids.
With the proper encouragement to embrace their own special features, readers can gain the courage to reach for their dreams. Because despite the vast differences we may see in our physical features, each and every one of us is alike on the inside—and that’s the best kind of beauty of all!
