You Are a Gift to the World by Laura Duksta

We love books at our house, especially books that have powerful messages! Therefore, we were extremely excited to receive a copy of You Are a Gift to the World to review!

Laura Duksta lost all of her hair at age eleven. She was bullied, teased and humiliated throughout her teenage and college years. Even today, she remembers so clearly when someone at a party grabbed her wig and tossed it across a dance floor.

As a result, Laura became introverted and depressed, and tried to fill the void caused by feeling like a misfit in unhealthy ways. It wasn't until her thirtieth birthday, and after the idea for her first book, I Love You More, that she was finally able to accept herself, and her bald head. The idea of I Love You More came to Laura after she saw her sister dealing with issues of being a young mother, and her nephew as a victim of those difficulties. Laura self-published I Love You More and sold more than 50,000 copies. Sourcebooks then released the book and it went on to become a New York Times bestseller. Now, she is releasing a new book, You Are a Gift to the World.
You Are a Gift to the World has a powerful message for children and adults about appreciating one another and the world around us. It has quickly became one of Ella's favorite! It is a must have for all of the little ones in your life! We encourage you to check it out today!
