In A Part of You by E.A. Davis, Madison is just like any other little girl. When the weather was nice, she liked to play outside. However, like all little girls, Madison liked to be with other little girls her age. She really didn't like being alone. One day her mother did send her outside to play by herself. Madison was sad. That is, until she learned that a flower's beauty could be shared with her; and the strength of a rock could also be shared; and that the ability to stand straight and tall like a tree could also be shared; and that the bright light of the sun was all around her to keep her company. Madison no longer felt alone. She no longer felt sad. At the end of her play time, Madison's mother asked her if she enjoyed her time alone outside. Madison answered, "I did because I wasn't alone. I am a part of the world and that makes me beautiful, strong, tall and bright."

E.A. Davis has created a simple story of beauty - the beauty of being oneself and being content within the world where we live. The illustrations are bright and colorful, just like the message of the story. Girls of all ages need to be reminded that they are not alone, that they are an important part of this big world, that they are all beautiful, strong, tall and bright. This is a beautiful story with a beautiful message for young girls everywhere. The message: it's important to be yourself and be happy about yourself because you are one with the big, beautiful world all around you.
