My 22 year old daughter loves to color! I got her this coloring book and as she’s flipping through it she stops on one specific page and says “STOP IT!! She looks like me when i get my hair done!” Coming from a multi cultural family, to hear her say this, maybe for the first time in 22 years, made my momma heart so happy!! Thank you for bringing representation to my girls in this way!!!! Love love love!!!
I held a Girls' Empowerment Workshop. The girls were so excited! They were still talking about it a week later. Many have asked me when the next Empowerment Day is with Sumer Strawbree! I was so impressed with everyone's professionalism. I am definitely planning more workshops for next school year.
Perfect gift of empowerment for my sweet granddaughters 9th Birthday. Kids began picking on her mixed black & white features….called her UGLY. She’s gorgeous inside and out. The poster kinda made her perk up. I tell her she is the very best combo of both parents.
So cute and soft!
My 9 year old granddaughter came to visit yesterday and when I opened the package she said, What's that? I told her it's a beautiful new coloring book I got just for her. She said thanks and her eyes lit up with the vibrant cover. She loved it so much she began to use a pen on the pages as that was all she had access to. I especially appreciate the pictures with affirmations that she read as she was flipping through...she can see herself in the images, even before she colored them. She made sure she took it home with her too!
Thank you for creating a wonderful diverse coloring book to encourage many girls including my daughter😁
The portrait was beautiful. It was given as a birthday gift copied on a canvas. Will definitely be ordering more for some other girls. Thank you for this product.
This is for my granddaughter for Christmas
I purchased some of these cards for my granddaughters to focus on their important self-esteem. I know affirmations are so efficient and helpful for any age and anyone so I knew this would be a great surprise for my grand girls!
I bought these 60 Self-Esteem Building Affirmations Cards after my niece was badly bullied at school because of her brown skin. When she received them, her eyes brightened up and I told her to read every affirmation out loud! Her self-esteem will surely rise with these cards. These are the PERFECT gift! ❤️
I am so glad I purchased this for my great niece
Absolutely love it
Awesome. Will be giving as Christmas gifts.
It was an honor meeting SumerStrawbree! I truly believe that my daughter learned so much from what you’ve shared. Sumer shared her story, how she overcame bullying, and some drawing tips since my daughter wants to get into digital art! Again, so great meeting you Sumer 💖👏
My daughter loves her printed portrait surrounded with positive affirmations! 🥰
Girls' Confidence Nose Dives Starting at Age 8
Reasons Why Girls Self-Esteem has Plummeted
Children are born with self-confidence, however, that can be quickly ruined: at school, by family, by close friends or during other experiences where you are unfortunately not there to protect these vulnerable girls.
A survey found that teenage girls' mental health are often overlooked by their parents and others.
If you’re a parent of a young girl or know a young girl, you're probably hoping that she quickly discovers her self-worth and value before someone defines it for her. It is critical to support and encourage a young girl's abilities and strengths as soon as they are discovered. Usually as young as possible. If not, you’ll face a tough uphill battle that can take years to restore the self-esteem that was snatched from her.
Imagine gifting Black, Brown and Beautiful a coloring book with positive affirmations and images to a young girl and the affirmations taking her self-esteem from zero to hero or from hero to super hero over time.
Take the first step to protect a young girls self-esteem by introducing my positive and self-affirming written affirmations from my Best Selling Coloring Book, Black, Brown and Beautiful that can be read aloud daily: Once when waking up and once before bed.
Join the HUNDREDS of girls already on the journey to improved self-esteem.
