'Beautifully Me' written by the popular influencer Nabela Noor is about Zubi, a joyful Bangladeshi-American girl who discovers confidence in a world of narrowly defined beauty standards.
"Throughout my career, I have consistently advocated for self-love and body celebration and over the years, I've learned that healthy body image needed to be taught at the root - with children. I spend every day helping people unlearn negative and unhealthy beauty standards. What would happen if I helped teach children to define beauty for themselves?" Noor wrote on her instagram post.
She also said "I'm so excited for you to meet her in September. For a Bangladeshi-American family to be represented in illustrations that will touch you and words that I pray will uplift you."
Wonderfully illustrated by Nabi H. Ali, the story is an extension of Noor's body positive message of self-love that has made her a popular influencer on Instagram and beyond, where she holds more than 8 million followers across various platforms.
'Beautifully Me' encourages readers of all ages to develop positive relationships with their bodies, as well as parents and caregivers to consider how they speak about themselves when children are present.
The book is available on amazon for pre-order.
