Picture This!: "The World Needs Who You Were made to Be" by Joanna Gaines In the #1 New York Times bestseller, "The World Needs Who You Were Made to Be," Joanna Gaines celebrates how creativity and acceptance can come together to make for a bright and beautiful adventure. The book, illustrated by Julianna Swaney, follows a group of children as they each build their very own hot-air balloons. As the kids work together, leaning into their own skills and processes, we discover that the same is true for life—it's more beautiful and vibrant when our differences are celebrated. #joannagaines #theworldneedswhoyouweremadetobe #bookrecommendations #picturethis
