The Day You Begin Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Jacqueline Woodson is the 2018-2019 National Ambassador for Young People's Literature
A number one New York Times best seller!
National Book Award winner Jacqueline Woodson has created a poignant, yet heartening book about finding courage to connect, even when you feel scared and alone.
There will be times when you walk into a room
and no one there is quite like you.
There are many reasons to feel different. Maybe it's how you look or talk, or where you're from; maybe it's what you eat, or something just as random. It's not easy to take those first steps into a place where nobody really knows you yet, but somehow you do it.
Jacqueline Woodson's lyrical prose and warm narration remind us that we all feel like outsiders sometimes - and how brave it is that we go forth anyway. And that sometimes, when we reach out and begin to share our stories, others will be happy to meet us halfway.

We have all felt alone and looked for comfort from the people around us. This is a warming book about connection and self-confidence. Beautiful and should be on every child’s bookshelf.
And it’s beautifully illustrated!
Maybe when she’s older it might work but she’ll have actually started school by then so it wouldn’t serve the purpose I bought it for.
Humour and a story go a long way to communicate with a child and this has neither
