In the follow-up to When Things Aren't Going Right, Go Left, comes a heartwarming and joyful celebration of self-love from #1 New York Times bestselling creator Peter H. Reynolds and talented author Marc Colagiovanni!

"I like being you," said the reflection in the mirror. “To me, you are perfectly perfect."

This is a story of self-love that teaches children that their physical layer is just that -- one layer -- and below it lies a rich tapestry of attributes that make them unique and wonderful. Through Marc Colagiovanni’s powerful text and Peter H. Reynolds's inspirational artwork, this picture book offers readers a wholly original exploration of self-love and self-acceptance.

Originally released as an animated short, which has over 1.4 million views on YouTube, this is the second of two new picture books created in collaboration with Marc and Peter that is sure to inspire, affirm, and reassure at key milestone moments in every young reader's life. The Reflection in Me serves to empower children and readers of all ages to find the courage to look inside and love themselves just as they are.
