童書推介,自信最漂亮:Checklisted Beauty 清單美人




皮皮很喜歡看圖書,每晚睡覺前都會有Mami Time跟媽媽一同看圖書,說故事~是我們的甜蜜時刻❤️


今日分享這本 “Checklisted Beauty 清單美人"

香港作者 林凱思 Libby Lam 是一位有2個女兒的媽媽,故事內容與插圖都是由Libby一手包辦~


 A story of self-discovery and triumph, a 10-year-old girl finds confidence in herself and the importance of uniqueness over outward appearances.

40% of primary school girls (some as young as 6 years old) think they are too fat.
80% of 10-year-old girls have attempted dieting at least once.
50% of 13-year-old girls are significantly unhappy about their appearance, trending up to 80% when they are 17 years of age.
These statistics come to no surprise for most of us, who have experienced this firsthand or have seen this happen to people around us. In a world where traditional and social media continue to proliferate with the support of ever-advancing technology, young girls are continuously exposed to images of the 'ideal' face and body shape and to the illusion that 'a perfect body must lead to a perfect life'.

Many of these girls become acutely aware of their appearance. This leads them to start conforming to societal beauty standards, believing that this is both how a person is defined and accepted.

Self-esteem falls. Girls feel they lack the encouragement and empowerment to reach their true potential. This is why it's important for parents to identify the issue in their daughters, guide and nurture them into having healthy self-esteem, confidence in their unique talents, and emotional well-being essential to their future success.

The book "Checklisted Beauty" tells the story of the nature-loving and sporty 10-year-old Azure, as she discovers the world of make-up and physical beauty. When Azure meets Valerie, a new student who lives by the "beauty checklist", she finds a change in how she sees both herself and the world around her. Follow Azure in her journey of self-discovery and the importance of developing unique talents as she discovers the true meaning of beauty and happiness.

Not only will young readers be able to relate to the flashiness Azure is exposed to every day, but her struggles too. Feeling inadequate and insecure after comparing herself to others and getting hyped over unattainable beauty standards, Azure learns to recognize her true beauty lies within her inborn talents and personality.

"Checklisted Beauty" inspires children at school age (age 5 - 12) to stay true to themselves and appreciate their inner beauty.

A healthy self-esteem in childhood can follow children through to their teenage years, up into adulthood. Start early – the best time to help your child develop a positive body image is well before their teens - the age group this book addresses.




這本英文圖書適合幼小兒童閱讀,雖然皮皮唔多識英文生字,但內裡的圖畫好色彩繽紛、易明,現在的他從圖畫導讀,也很能提起閱讀興趣~

故事講女主角Azure生活突然遇到身分危機,究竟纖瘦身材、大眼睛、樣貌漂亮是否小朋友所追求?

皮皮未必明白現時女生所想的,但從中可輸入正確的價值觀,正所謂「天生我材必有用」,每個人都有佢長處與優點,只要有自信、好好發揮才是最吸引別人、最漂亮~



而且生活並不是追求外貌漂亮,家庭、友誼、興趣都能從中發掘自信,人生充滿色彩~
