I Believe in You - Marianne Richmond

Marianne Richmond has done it again. Inspired by her own four children, Marianne has published another heart-warming children's book called I Believe In You. It's a book that encourages kids to find that they have all they need to succeed by simply looking within themselves. It also serves as a reminder that they will always have someone cheering them on no matter how hard life becomes.

I Believe in You by Marianne Richmond

Beautifully illustrated, I Believe in You is an inspiring story and a definite must-have in your home library. My daughter is fearful of learning to ride a bike so the cover illustration instantly peaked her interest. In fact, she decided to read it on her own, when she usually asks me to read for her. She was further intrigued by the pictures and kept on reading. She now keeps it next to her copy of If I Could Keep You Little.

Your job of growing up
takes hard work, I know,
but each day is an adventure.
Each problem helps you grow.

Growing up is never easy. From schoolwork, friendships, fitting in, and standing out, children of any age will feel more confident knowing that they have support. And with this support, they can feel empowered to persevere, to problem-solve, to endure, and to succeed.

Whether it’s sunny or stormy,
Whether you’re happy or blue,
I’m here to say, without a doubt,
That I believe in you!

The book is available at bookstores as well as online from Marianne Richmond's online store for $15.99. It is currently on sale on Amazon.com for $10.87.
