A young girl starts a new day with the positive attitude of "I will be fience!" Her affirmations show her to be brave, adventurous, face fears, learn knowledge, solve problems, stand up for her beliefs and find new ways of doing things. The illustrations allow the reader to interpret the back story for each affirmation. A wonderful book to encourage students to find their own way and stand up for what they believe in.
