Be Bold! Be Brave! Be Remarkable!…

This is a book about 40 inspirational women from different African countries — women who made moves to lead, overcome and conquer in their various fields.



Our Debut picture BOOK



“There is only one me!”

"Who Do I See in the Mirror? explores the various parts of the body, making the idea of self-discovery exciting for children while encouraging them to love each part. It reminds children that they are much more than their physical appearance. This gorgeous, colour-illustrated book concludes with a strong message that it’s what is on the inside that counts. A wonderful finishing touch is that it ends with a certificate that each child can hang up on their wall."

As Philly looks at her reflection in the mirror, she realises that from her curly hair to her legs that love to dance, she is unique. But what makes her truly special is her good heart and curious mind.
