About the book:
This is the third book by Victor Lethbridge whose self-esteem workshops for young people have become renowned across Canada.
"We love you as the sun rises high / as the stars shine brilliant and bright. / From the moment we first heard your cry, / we knew in our hearts, "You're just right!" And so begins the telling of the birth and transformation of an indigenous baby from childhood to teen years to womanhood, supported throughout her journey by loving and supportive parents. Award-winning author Victor Lethbridge reminds us that, even though we all share in the same struggles, each one of us longs to hear these words whispered in our ear - "I love you so much. You're just right..."
Victor Lethbridge is an accomplished motivational speaker, aboriginal storyteller, musician, and award winning author. He focuses his time and energy helping Canada’s aboriginal youth with hands-on interactive workshops.
