A beautifully illustrated, heart-warming and inspiring story about overcoming fears, finding self-love, being able to see yourself for who you really are, and finding the strength to be amazing by just being you.



Young Livy Loo faces her fears and doubts about herself and learns to see her strengths while realizing how amazing she already is, and all that she can do. With sweet rhyming verses that touch on kindness, caring, and reaching for the stars, The Amazing Livy Loo and the Things She Can Do delivers a message of acceptance and encouragement for children and helps them recognize that everyone can have doubts and fears, but still be amazing and capable of reaching all their dreams to be the person they dream to be.

Super Adorable overall! I can’t help but smile every time I read this book, or even just see it on my bookshelf. It tells an amazing story of a brave little good named Livy. As a person that had a bit of a rough childhood, this is something I would have loved to hold close to my heart. Even as a young adult, it still touched my heart strings. Thanks so much Jenna!
