You Are a Beautiful Beginning

Author(s): Nina Laden; Kelsey Garrity-Riley (Illustrator)

Children's Picture Books

It is not the destination, but the journey.


Inspired by this timeless adage, You Are a Beautiful Beginning combines lyrical storytelling and lovely art, blossoming into a celebration of self-love, friendship, and community. With beautiful simplicity and hidden depth, this meditative and magical picture book encourages readers old and young to discover their own endless potential. Kelsey Garrity-Riley's inviting, gently magical art pairs beautifully with a lyrical, deceptively simple text by Nina Laden to create a picture book that is equal parts inspirational story and peaceful lullaby.


It is not wishing to be different.
It is learning to love being you.


It is not the end of your story.
It is a beautiful beginning, too.


This is another uplifting and original book from bestseller Nina Laden, the creator of Peek-A-Who and the author of If I Had a Little Dream and Yellow Kayak.
