The Inner-Beauty Secret

By Keisha Howard

(Grades PK-3) Shhh…this book is for a group of kids who know the true meaning of being beautiful. Do you want to know the secret?
Inner-beauty is not in the shape of your body nor in the style of your hair, 
when you are beautiful; your actions show kindness and care.
What you look like on the outside will fade away, but your inner-beauty is here to stay!
The Inner-Beauty Secret will teach young children the importance of the character traits that are found within. Topics such as trustworthiness, kindness, respect, and responsibility are covered. Body image appreciation is also addressed as children are encouraged to find genuine beauty within while also learning to accept themselves, differences and all.
The Inner-Beauty Secret is a picture book appropriate for grades Pre-K-3rd grade. Kids are constantly bombarded with messages from the media about the importance of physical beauty. They start comparing themselves to each other and celebrities at a very young age, which causes lower self-esteem. This book explores the concept of beauty being found within a person’s character rather than in their physical attributes. This book can be used in small group counseling sessions, or it can be read as a single story to and entire class to teach Character Education.
The paperback version includes discussion questions, inner-beauty tips for parents and educators and a list of other resources including a link to reproducible worksheets and lesson plans to use with the story. Softcover, 32 pages.
