A colorful journey of self-discovery and identity, this sweet, vibrant picture book follows young Leila as she visits her grandmother_ã_s house for their weekly family dinner, and finds parts of herself and her heritage in the family, friends, and art around her.
Sometimes I_ã_m not sure if I like being me.
When Leila looks in the mirror, she doesn_ã_t know if she likes what she sees. But when her grandmother tells her the saffron beads on her scarf suit her, she feels a tiny bit better. So, Leila spends the rest of their family dinner night on the lookout for other parts of her she does like.
Follow Leila_ã_s journey as she uses her senses of sight, smell, taste, touch to seek out the characteristics that make up her unique identity, and finds reasons to feel proud of herself, just as she is.
