Never Give Up Review

Never Give Up – A story about Self-Esteem is a perfect book to illustrate  the power of friendship, the affect your decisions can have upon your self-esteem, and how important determination is to accomplishing something. It is set for ages 5-8 years old, and speaks perfectly for that age group. The wearing of the hijab by one of the main characters, whilst never even mentioned in the book, subtly goes against the undercurrent of anti-Muslim rhetoric. There is nothing in this book that could have been done better. Perfectly done, with simple illustrations that let the story take the forefront whilst still adding value to the book. I highly recommend this book.
