Shine Kids, You're Talented, Gifted and Blessed Go Follow Your Dreams!
About the Book
No matter who you are, you are God’s special child, and the Amazing Grace from up above was inspired to create you out of goodness and love. Children can work together and accomplish great things, overcoming all kinds of obstacles. Because of God’s gifts to you and the virtues you can choose to use, you have the ability to reach for your dreams and achieve anything. Never give up! You can do it!
Based on a graffiti piece created behind a grammar school in Auburndale, Queens, in 2008, this illustrated poem encourages kids to believe in themselves and follow their dreams.
