BECOMING BEAUTIFUL by Tarang Rawat

Please welcome author Tarang Rawat to Frog on a Blog! Tarang’s on an important mission to inspire and empower girls to be strong, independent, and confident–through her book Becoming Beautiful. Read on to see how you can help!

Are you a parent of a lovely little girl who often spends hours in front of the mirror disapproving of her face or figure? Do you try to find confidence in your child’s smile, but see it fading away every day? And wonder who stole it? Where did it go?

Well, your daughter is not alone. Statistics show that negative body image and low self-esteem is a growing epidemic in our society. Children today are exposed to fake and unrealistic standards of physical beauty. Influenced by popular television shows, celebrity culture, social media, and peer pressure, our young girls often embrace an unnatural image of beauty from a very young age. And when they compare themselves to those unrealistic standards, they feel inadequate and imperfect. If young girls are dissatisfied with the way they look, they are bound to develop negative body image and low self-esteem, which is detrimental to their growth and success in life.

If we let the status quo be, we run the risk of leaving behind a generation of girls that are completely unaware of their potential and self-worth.

I strongly believe that every girl deserves to know that she’s beautiful, and through my book, Becoming Beautiful, I want to help girls see their true beauty. Becoming Beautiful is an inspirational children’s book written for girls, aged 4-9, who find it difficult to recognize and accept their true, awesome self.

With Becoming Beautiful, I describe a beautiful tale celebrating girl power, embracing your true self, and recognizing your inherent beauty. Becoming Beautiful is here to make girls feel incredible as they truly are.

To fund the production, design, and printing of my book, I am running a Kickstarter campaign from February 13th to March 13th and am seeking community support to make this book a reality.

The book trailer and pre-order of the book are now available on www.becomingbeautiful.us.

Becoming Beautiful is on a mission to empower young girls to love their bodies and themselves. When a girl feels more confident in her body, she will be more assertive, perform better physically and academically, and she will say ‘yes’ to more opportunities.

More than a book, it’s a message that needs to be shared with parents and adults, so we can raise a generation of strong, independent girls who are proud of themselves.

Support this campaign and give your daughter the gifts of confidence, self-worth, and happiness.

About the Author: 

Tarang Rawat had an early affair with writing. Sadly, the romance ended, leaving behind splatters of dark poetry, which never saw the light of day. While other things caught her attention, they could not keep it for long. However, she found other venues of engagement; from designing clothes for models to designing system for companies, she’s worn many hats and balanced many cups.
As fate would have it, old lovers crossed paths again, and the romance rekindled. They picked up where they left off, a more candid affair this time.

Mr. Love & Mrs. You and Their Wonderful Planet by Martin Small (Kickstarter Campaign)

I’m Martin Small and I’ve recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for my book Mr. Love and Mrs. You & Their Wonderful Planet – in this story, we’ll visit candy floss hill, we’ll see the marshmallow trees, the lollipop fields and the love heart moon! I would love to tell you a bit more about it and my motivation behind writing it. 

I made this book because I wanted to say “love you” to my boy at night-time – I needed the book to be wacky, colourful and bold – something different from other illustrated books on the market. And at the end of the story, you get to say “love you” to your child. There’s nothing better in the world than seeing a child’s smile – it’s infectious and true. And when that child is your child it melts your heart!

Mr. Love and Mrs. You ended up being even better than I imagined! I found an illustrator, Joe Davies who had just the perfect wacky style to fit my story. The pictures really pop in the book, and the story is designed to be interactive, with guessing games and onomatopoeias that engage the children and allow them to join in. I visit schools and read it to groups of children, and it’s great to see how much they enjoy it!

I chose to crowdfund the book because sending it to a publishing house was never going to work for me – I struggle with dyslexia and it’s hard for me to get the words out in the right way for a cover letter. Plus, self publishing will give me more creative tools in my book. 

I think face-to-face traditional storytelling is one of the most amazing things you can experience together, and in a modern world of smartphones and iPads, basically a lot of screen time for kids, I feel like it’s more important than ever to actively preserve the art of storytelling. Don’t get me wrong, I am a strong believer in technology but not if it comes at the cost of children’s social and mental development. Children should get lost in their own imaginations, and get to go on a journey with the main characters, and be inspired.

With my book, I want to share my love for classic storytelling and hope I can inspire others to write and get lost in the wonderful world of books. Visit my Kickstarter page to learn more! I really appreciate your support.

Is there anything better than telling your child you love them? This book will remind you to do just that at the end of every day.

Teddy’s Last Christmas Kickstarter Campaign by Christina Jackson

The first book my mother read to me was The Three Little Pigs.

I remember, and will never forget, cuddling up next to her as she played the Big Bad Wolf, attempting to blow down a brick house. Or the softness of her voice as she shared a story with me. So was born my love of children’s books and the stories they share with us. Something I in turn wish to share with you. ~Christina Jackson
