Maybe: A Story About The Endless Potential In All Of Us

You are the only you there ever has been or ever will be. You are unique in all the universe. Just the odds of you being here at this exact place and this exact time are so great and so rare that it will never happen again. Written by New York Times best-selling author Kobi Yamada, this is a story for everything you will do and everything you can be. It?s a story about all the possibilities ahead of you. It?s for who you are right now and it?s for all the magical, unbounded potential you hold inside. With its beautiful visual storytelling and timeless message, Maybe is an inspiring story for kids of all ages. Praise for Maybe "You need this book if you're young or old, if you read it to your kids or if you read it to yourself. You need it if you're lost, if you need reassurance, or if you just like to feel good." (Karin Myers, The Children's Book Library)"This is the most empowering kids? book I?ve seen. It?s about letting kids know THEY MATTER. It?s about purpose and potential, with a touch of magic and realness. It?s the book every girl or boy should hear." (Michelle Poler, HelloFears) ?Yamada?s joy and appreciation for life combined with Barouch?s deep love of nature has created an inspiring and absolutely stunning book that will undoubtedly speak to people of all ages.?(Bianca Schulze, The Children?s Book Review) ?Dream, discover, love, speak your mind, and above all follow your heart, encouraged by this collection of reveries exploring a myriad of beautiful what-ifs and maybes.? (Pallas Gates McCorquodale, Foreword Reviews) ?Maybe is inspiration tucked inside an adventure, perfect for readers of any age who may be asking, ?What next??? (Jill Lorenzini, BookPage) ?Have you ever picked up a book and found yourself holding your breath as you turned the pages? That was my exact response to Maybe. It can only be described as absolutely breathtaking.? (Dawn Mooney, 5 Minutes for Books) "In Maybe, Yamada beautifully expresses the ideals every adult wants their children to know and embrace. He offers reassurance that discovering one?s gift, place, or method of influence is not a one-time thing or quickly and easily found, and he encourages readers to take their time, explore, think, and keep their eyes and hearts open.? (Kathryn Carroll, Celebrate Picture Books) "If you have been looking for a gorgeous book to use as a keepsake, look no further. This new release is positively stunning and celebrates the potential and possibility in children." (Clarissa Schweider, Book Nerd Mommy)ReviewBeing human comes with many perplexing questions. But sometimes asking those questions opens the doors to a path, if not a straightforward answer. Written by Kobi Yamada and illustrated by Gabriella Barouch, Maybe is an inspiration tucked inside an adventure, perfect for readers of any age who may be asking, What next? Loosely following the journey of a little girl, who is fancifully clad in a leafy bird cap, Maybe s art is intrinsic to its message. Barouch s vibrant, detailed illustrations are unusual and delightful. Dreamlike and intriguing, her art defies convention; mushrooms may loom as large as trees, and glaciers might fit comfortably in your hand. Pulling readers further into her journey, the little girl more a reader s companion than a character helps create the fantasy, watering giant flowers, building a tower of houses. In a final lyrical nod, Barouch carries elements from page to page, culminating with an image that will leave readers smiling. Maybe is an invitation instead of a lecture, as Yamada delivers his message with simple, brief statements that keep the story moving. And while the book s images are imagined and invented, there is honesty in each depiction. When the little girl fails, a scribble hangs over her head. She climbs inside a storybook and befriends the unfamiliar. It would be a disservice to qualify Maybe as just a children s book. Children of all ages have dreams pulling them along, destinat
