EXCERPT:
Day by day we use our voice, not only for noise but for speaking our choice.

Night by night, we move through fear; we know this is how to pioneer. Beyond our worry, the way shines clear, and the thoughts that limit us, soon disappear.

We are all diverse, yet one and the same. No matter the challenge, break the chain. Shine like a star to be who you are.

Raise your voice with vigour, to see your potential grow bigger. This is your gift, so be as you are. If you forget your way, then look to the stars.

In the darkness of night, shoot for the moon. Always remember, the light returns soon.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Kelsey Lee is a writer and adventurer who lives in Calgary, Alberta. With a diverse background from business owner to yoga teacher, most often, you can find her writing, working with children, and exploring all that nature has to offer. Kelsey finds daily inspiration to value child-like curiosity and empathy through her two children, and her work in Equine Therapy. As a free-spirited child herself, Kelsey has always believed that anyone could achieve their wildest dreams, no matter how far-reaching. She passionately encourages self-empowerment and self-esteem, as The Tiger Like Me, aims to support the reader in honouring their individuality to be courageously unique, and playfully curious.

GUEST POST:
- What is the one major thing you'd like children to remember about your book?

I hope the most memorable takeaway from The Tiger Like Me is for children to recognize that being unique is a gift. As children, we often live a life un-masked, free to be ourselves without the worry of judgment or ridicule. Children are raw and real when sharing their opinions and expressing their true selves. As adults, we often need to peel back many layers of social conditioning to discover who we are, which often results in the re-discovery of who we were as children. As Paulo Coelho brilliantly says, “a child can teach us three things: to be happy for no reason, to always be curious, and to fight tirelessly for something.” My highest aspiration as an adult and as a parent is to encourage children to foster their true nature. One of life’s greatest blessings is seeing the world through the eyes of a child. I hope The Tiger Like Me encourages kids to embrace curiosity and discovery while reminding adults to cherish a child’s cognizance.
