Jerrice has used her beautiful words to inspire! Combining story with her Spirit-based poetry, she has created a treasure that hopefully will feed the souls of young girls for years. The book comes even more alive with April's sweet, colorful illustrations. Share this with your family and start your own tradition...joy will be your reward.

Delightful art accompanies the lyrical words of Jerrice J. Baptiste in Tu Es Ma Belle... Her concept book models a message of self-worth. Josie's Haitian family has a tradition that goes back for generations: The mothers start the day with a mantra of love that nurtures self-esteem. Josie wakes up in Brooklyn, but she has Haitian cousins living in many different places. Each of them starts the day hearing the same greeting, tu es ma belle. --Bobbi Katz, poet and author of Once Around the Sun, whose popular anthology, Pocket Poems, is now available in paperback.
This is a loving, calm, beautiful book. Every little (and not so little) girl should have a copy. I will be buying it for my grandchildren. Bravo, Jerrice J. Baptiste! --Abigail Thomas's most recent books are A Three Dog Life and Thinking About Memoir
I love the message in this wonderful book by Jerrice J. Baptiste: mothers and aunts telling daughters and nieces that they're worthwhile and beautiful. What a better world this would be if all little girls heard this when they were young. And I love April Matula s artwork too. Thank you both! --Bar Scott, author of The Present Giver, published by ALM Books
