In You Are Great, Curtis Lewis writes in a play format using illustrations to keep the youth engaged through storytelling. This book encourages the reader to look within themselves and find their inner greatness. The character, Kid goes on his journey to school and is reminded by the people in his village to never give up and that he has something great to offer to the world.
The book reminds the youth that their story is being written every day by the story they tell themselves and how they treat others. It helps to build confidence and self- confidence in the reader.
It is important to share stories with messages to the youth, letting them know how important they are and that their dreams can be achieved by building their character and love towards themselves, which helps pass the same to others as their life goes on. Always being reminded no matter how challenging life gets, “YOU ARE GREAT!”
