“I can give Kingsley piggyback rides, even though he’s older than me! I can run SUPER fast!”

Discover Strong Like Me, a picture-book story about finding what makes YOU strong.

Kamara loves being super strong – it makes her feel fizzy and zappy! But her classmates and their negative words lead her to question how strong she really is. With Sport’s Day and the Big Race looming, does Kamara have what it takes to reach the finish line?

And can she discover what being STRONG means to her?

“A BEAUTIFUL celebration of STRENGTH in all its forms.” – Dapo Adeola, author of Hey You! An Empowering Celebration of Growing Up Black
