"Whether it's sunny or stormy,
Whether you're happy or blue,
I'm here to say, without a doubt
that I believe in you."

I Believe in You explores the powerful
feeling in every parent's heart as
you watch a child take on the big job
of growing up. This inspiring and
meaningful book puts into words the
little moments that reveal just how
much you believe in them, no matter
what life throws their way.

Growing up is a roller coaster ride of
emotion and adventure, asking a child
to show self-confidence and courage
that they may not know they have.
Showing you will be by their side can
mean the world to them and give them
the strength they often so desperately
need. Award-winning author and
illustrator Marianne Richmond uses
her signature uplifting style to show
that your support and unconditional
love is always there as children
navigate the road of life.

I Believe in You encourages kids to look
within to find they have all they need
to succeed-and to know they always
have someone cheering them on.

While the vignettes in Richmond's latest inspirational picture book are intended for the elementary school set (her characters grapple with not getting picked for a team, being scared of monsters in the closet, and jumping off the diving board), what human, of any age, couldn't use this kind of c...
