Best in Me!

by Natalie McDonald-Perkins /

Illustrated by Mary Ibeh

Natalie McDonald-Perkins' debut book, "Best in Me," reignites the senses through the use of poetry.
While Perkins invites us into the lives of nine multicultural children, she effortlessly uses the power of language to weave a common thread that will resonate with children across the world, as well as the child that still lives within every adult. Dare to look within yourself and discover and/or rediscover the best in YOU!"
