One of Cali's bestie friends, Lyvia, is feeling pretty icky. Lyvia had to get glasses, and she is sure the glasses make her look yucky. Lyvia does not even want to wear them, but Cali has a better idea, and a great lesson to teach her bestie: you are be-u-tee-full for simply being you.
My first reaction to this book was: OH MY GOODNESS!!! I absolutely love this little red head, Cali is the kind of friend that every one needs in their life. Her Big Green Eyes do not see imperfections, they only see just how absolutely Be-U-Tee-Full her bestie friends really are.
I fell deeply in love with Cali and her Bestie Lyvia. This book needs to be in the hands of every girl, big, little, or in-betweenies...
Author Journie Roe has an absolutely wonderful talent in telling stories of how real life issues, problems or feelings should be handled. I am looking forward to reading more from author Journie Roe. And the illustration by Pedro Perez are so amazing. As I said above, my very first reaction was a great big wow, and I loved every page from there on till the end.
So when you get the chance: Please pick this book up and give to a young lady in your life. You may never know what an impact your action may have on your bestie's in your life.
