The new children’s book by Mary Russo, PhD; skillfully shares practical advice for the young reader with the use of a fanciful character named Polka Dot Sue.
This story encourages a sense of self-acceptance and pride despite obstacles, thus showing a sense of self-empowerment can arise all from believing in one-self .

“Feeling sad and ashamed leads to feelings of depression and anxiety, thus fostering feelings of poor self-esteem and making one prone to think in a distorted way”, Russo writes. “Poor self-esteem clouds ones’ identity and may lead to feeling ashamed and sad.”

Accepting ourselves for who we are despite what others may think or say, gives one a greater sense of self and better equipped to tackle life’s events.

Polka Dot Sue is the story of a young girl with polka dot hair, who takes great pride in who she is and conveys this pride with her enjoyment of clothing herself handsomely each day. The story gives a child the sense of self acceptance and pride to show others that a deep sense of self-empowerment come from believing in one self despite obstacles.
With the color-emotion awareness, another sense of expressiveness, it encourages the young reader to understand more about feelings with color and self-expression.
Also the days of the week provide a framework, which gives an opportunity for more fundamental growth.

With illustrations by Yelena Kasianova., the story is brought to life and the positive messages are conveyed in this colorfully, illustrated , deeply enchanting new children’s book.
