"Just because you are different, that doesn't mean you can't succeed and share your gifts and passion with the world! That is the timely and important message of You Are Brave. This book helps readers learn their own self-worth and encourages kids to overcome obstacles by sticking up for themselves and others, trying new things, and showing the world how brave they are!...Sofia has Down syndrome, but she hasn't let that stop her from becoming a successful model, actress, and activist. Sofia is the perfect person to share You Are Brave's message of encouragement and bravery with kids everywhere." --publisher's website
