In the children’s book, She Shines Bright, by Jessi Rausch, the author wishes all good things for her daughter Harper and all girls while they are growing up, from being the president one day to being a mother and to whatever they set their minds. Rausch mentions how she would like for her daughter Harper to stay a child, but knows this is impossible. Rausch is a very good role model and supportive, which not all children have in their lives. Maybe if all mothers had a copy of this book, they would understand the need for good role models and how much their child or maybe even a stranger’s child needs them.
Rausch’s book was very simple and easy to read. It showed superb illustrations and, to me, demonstrated how good role models are very much needed, especially mothers. The book flowed smoothly as it explains the way kids have vivid imaginations and dreams, and how this is important. It was nice how Rausch explained the different options for girls to embrace in the future. Yes, motherhood is always an option, but there are others that offer challenges also and should not be forgotten. Hopefully, moms can find this book at their local library and also explain to their daughters how libraries are an important way to research more on their dreams or whatever they set their minds to achieve. This is definitely a book I would recommend.
