The two coloring books, “I Am, And I Will Be: Positive Affirmations for Boys” and “I Am, And I Will Be: Positive Affirmations for Girls” are meant to promote feelings of self-acceptance and love in minority group children from an early age. They are filled with sayings such as “I am blessed,” “I will prosper,” “I will be prosperous” and “I am a person of excellence.” Children can repeat these statements as part of a morning or bedtime routine. Both books are available on sites such as Amazon or wherever else books are sold.
