Rearing a Child Through a Delightful Technique

Share Article

New picture book offers a refreshing twist for children to learn the importance of compassion and other virtues.

Using her charming prowess in storytelling, author Shirley Ann Burbank imparts valuable lessons to the young ones through a delightful picture book. Published through Xlibris, Who Am I? teaches children of the importance of having an identity that could contribute to the betterment of society.

Every person is unique in appearance. From the color of the hair, eyes, and skin to the shape of the nose and body build, a certain boy or a girl will always be different from the others. However, it is not the physical aspect of an individual that is important. In the end, what matters is the behavior and the traits that one shows. Using fun rhymes, this well crafted picture book conveys to children that they are responsible for their actions and that they can choose those actions. They can be whatever they want as long as they are contributing something good to the world.

Bursting with colorful illustrations in every page, Who Am I? is a fun and lesson-filled tool that parents can use to teach their child to become a person who chooses to be helpful, and does constructive actions which will lead to peace on earth.

Who Am I? will be featured at this year’s Illinois Library Association Book Exhibit in Chicago, IL on September 29-30, 2010. For more information, log on to
