    Lu is an eleven year old girl, named for her grandmothers She has a rich relationship with her grandmother They play cards They work together, and her grandmother is an inventive source of fun The artwork is so good Vivid watercolor portraits illustrate the bond between grandmother and grandchild I love the love reflected in their faces as they face each other From the first page I was drawn in, the fun Lu has with her grandmother keeps you turning the pages The story is a circle In the beginning you see the love and care that Grandma nurtures Lu, and then when Grandma needs her, the character and love that was so generously given to Lu comes back in full to Grandma This book is as timeless as Love You Forever or Sammy and the Robots I love to read and use the library heavily, but this is a book I will buy for our own family and give as a gift because its story of empathy and family love is so awesome Congratulations Mrs Klingler on a wonderful addition to the canon of excellent family books

    I loved this new children s book I Am Strong I Am Smart The cute story of Luisa May and her Grandmother illustrates the love that they share Grandma helps Lu learn lessons about loving herself by teaching her that she is smart and important after she has been bullied at school Then when Grandma has a stroke, Lu turns around and helps Grandma realize how smart she is and how she can reach her goals of recovering from the stroke This book would be a beautiful gift for a Grandma to give her grand kids or vice versa Any book that shares a message that every person is a special child of God and can be strong and courageous, is a winner I will share this book with my family and those I know.

    This is an important book that contains a crucial message about self worth Beautifully illustrated, I Am Strong I Am Smart stresses the importance of believing in ourselves Sharing the story of a young girl and the influence of her loving grandmother during a difficult time, this book makes it clear that we need to ignore negative insults and develop a strong sense of self worth After the grandmother teaches this crucial concept, she suffers a slight stroke, and it is the granddaughter s turn to remind the older woman of her own importance in this challenging world.

    I read this at first just because Briana is my dear friend and I wanted to see of her gorgeous art, but now I want to give it to every young girl I ll ever know.The girl in the book is 11, and that s a bit old for picture books, but it really is of a gift book, and younger girls will enjoy it as well my 4 year old did The message would be keenest for girls old enough to read it themselves, but really it s appropriate for any age including adults You couldn t go wrong with gifting this to any girl or woman you know.
