Today I'm Strong
A classic in the making from the winner of The Great British Baking Show and star of Nadiya Bakes, about a young girl finding her strength in spite of a schoolyard bully.
I love to go to school. Well, most days I do.
There are some days when what I really want
is to stay at home with you.
Most days, this little girl loves to go to school and play with her friends. But sometimes the schoolyard can feel like a battleground where she has to dodge mean words from a bully. Luckily, she always has her steadfast tiger by her side—even if she’s the only one who can see it. With the reminder that strength comes from within, she digs deep to believe in herself, no matter what anyone else says.
From the team behind My Monster and Me, Today I’m Strong is a tender story about finding the courage to hold your head high, with a powerful reminder to always be kin
Nadiya Hussain won season six of The Great British Baking Show. She has since hosted ten BBC cooking shows, including Time to Eat and Nadiya Bakes, and is the author of both companion cookbooks. She lives in the UK with her husband and three children.
* “Perfect for a lap sit with a young child beginning school, but it’s equally well-suited to a classroom read and invites age-appropriate conversations about bullying and the importance of being kind in either context.”—BCCB, starred review
“British cooking personality Hussain continues to explore themes of social-emotional intelligence and self-awareness in this picture book that follows My Monster and Me (2019). Bailey’s illustrations are charmingly comforting, rounded, and soft.”—Kirkus Reviews
