Be Yourself is the story of a beloved boy who finds himself in school in a different culture for the first time. When he is teased by the children who discover ways that he is different from them, Amim tries to avoid the pain of loneliness and rejection by an all too familiar pattern. Little by little, he eliminates anything and everything about himself that anyone objects to. As he adapts himself in extraordinary ways in order to make friends with the children who tease him, he discovers the most important secret about the nature of love and being the person God created him to be.
Spiritually, the story of Amim takes its point of departure from the fact that every child is born into the world loved by God in Whose image each one of us is created.
A beautiful story with a universal message about the uniqueness of each human being, the hunger for love, and the painful fear of rejection.
