I am a non-stop ball of energy.
Powerful and full of light.
I am a go-getter. A difference-maker. A leader.
Step inside the mind of the confident narrator of this book! He is proud of everything that makes him who he is. He’s got big plans, and will see them through. He’s creative, adventurous, smart, funny. A good friend. A superhero. Sometimes he falls, but he always gets back up. And other times he’s afraid, because he’s often misunderstood.
So, slow down, look and listen as he shows you who he really is...
Recommended for readers aged 3-6.
