Shine Bright (Hardcover)
Bursting with inspiration and affirmation, Kheris Rogers’ debut picture book encourages children everywhere to love the skin they are in.
When her confidence is shaken by peers who say they are scared of her because she's "too dark," Imani turns to her sister for a loving reminder that she’s smart, hope, brave, beautiful, strong, and just enough. After embracing what makes her truly special, Imani learns to be fearless!
Inspired by the real-life experiences of Kheris Rogers, the young CEO and designer of the Flexin’ in My Complexion clothing line, this ode to dark-skinned girls will empower many.
A perfect tool to teach children about appreciating both outer & inner beauty, embracing differences, being kind to oneself & others, and the power of reciting affirmations.
