Just Be You

Honey the Cocker Spaniel thinks she’s a duck. . .because that’s what she’s been told by the “others”. . . who just happen to be ducks! But secretly, Honey asks “Who can I tell that I am not what you see?” and the mirror replies “You can tell me!” Share Honey’s delightful journey of self-discovery in Ann Louise Ramsey’s magical children’s picture book Just Be You.

Magical realism comes to mind when reading Ramsey’s book. Inspired by her love for Honey, her Cocker Spaniel, along with her talent as a photographer and imaginative work in Photoshop, Ramsey has created “magically real” images to complement her Dr. Seuss style story-poem resulting in an enchanting book. With captivating images to match this simple, yet profound message, Just Be You will find its way into many hearts for years to come.
