I want to portray black children with the same tenderness as classic storybook characters! I want to create self-affirming content that inspires our children to look within to connect to the strength and greatness inside them that already exists.
Marsha Campbell's Debut Book
You're Here for A Purpose is a timely book to help encourage and inspire our children. It provides children with colorful images that reflects who they are and powerful words to shape who they will become. The book is easy to read, even for new/young readers, and includes great affirmations/self-talk statements for children to recite. It s never too early to begin helping children recognize their value and uniqueness and this book is a great tool to build their confidence and begin the "why am I here" conversation. I would highly recommend this book for children ranging from newborns through elementary school.
Next time you need a gift for a child add this book to the bag; it is a gift that will have a lasting impact on your young reader. The toys will break, but the words in this book will help to build strong, confident, purpose-driven children

The words are easy to remember and powerful. It’s also the perfect length for daily reading to help instill confidence and pride in being Black from an early age.

As a parent of a biracial daughter, I appreciate the variation in skin tones pictured in You're Here for a Purpose; as my daughter can relate to and appreciate the complexities of being Black. It encourages Black empowerment for every woke baby. Equally as important, You're Here for a Purpose rebrands what so much of America thinks it means to be a Black father and what it means to be Black. It is for these reasons that You're Here for a Purpose will be a book we go to daily.
