Recently, Edith Warimu from Foreword Reviews says that "The work includes short, easy-to-remember, and uplifting affirmations that emphasize the beauty, value, and purpose of each child, despite the existence of challenges like racism. They also encourage children to apply the knowledge that they learn, work toward their dreams, and believe in themselves. " You can read more of the book review here.
Message from Diedra:
The response has been nothing short of AMAZING! I am grateful for the opportunity to have a BOOK SIGNING in the very space from which From Me, To You, was created; and grateful for the opportunity to say THANK YOU to those who helped bring this book -- literally, and figuratively, FROM ME, TO YOU!
