New Children’s Book My Kind of Me Teaches Kids the Importance about Being Themselves

Kansas City, MO…Areia Cobb, a Kansas City Native, is releasing her first book My Kind of Me this month. My Kind of Me is a children’s book that focuses on letting children know that it is okay to be themselves. Children of all ages will enjoy learning from the main character Langston that no matter what the situation is, he has the solution and so can you.

“I want young people to realize that what’s cool today may not fit into who they are as individuals,” said author Ariea Cobb. “The book is interactive with a question and answer section at the end of the book to help further the anti-bullying discussion and youth development,” she explained. Children who are bullied are perceived as different from their peers.

My Kind of Me teaches kids the importance of loving themselves, while entertaining them at the same time. Ariea Cobb and Langston will be engaging young minds on November 16 with book readings at Brookside Charter School and Derrick Thomas Academy. On Saturday, November 17, at the Cleaver Family YMCA there will be a book release celebration that features activity stations for kids, book reading, and a questions and answer with Areia.
