Overview

Spread a positive message with Operation Beautiful!

You're beautiful just the way you are. Smile! Let your inner beauty shine. Imagine walking into a dressing room and finding notes like these stuck to the mirror. How would it make you feel? Operation Beautiful is a movement that promotes positivity and self-esteem by encouraging people to post notes with uplifting messages in public places, all in the hopes of changing the way people see themselves. The movement started out with a website and became a book for adults that published in August 2010. Our new book features notes written by real girls from all over the world alongside stories of how writing and finding these notes has changed their lives. Author and Operation Beautiful creator Caitlin Boyle also shares tips meant especially for girls on issues such as body image, bullying, and healthy eating. This book is an essential read for all growing girls, and is organized and written in a way that is meant for girls to share with their moms or their best friends!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debra Lampert-Rudman
Caitlin Boyle dedicates her book to "every girl who ever felt like she wasn't good enough," with this reassurance: "You're even more amazing than our wildest dreams. You're beautiful—just the way you are. This book is for you." Blogger-turned-author Boyle began a self-help movement by scribbling "You are beautiful!" on a post-it note, placing it on a mirror in a public bathroom, photographing it, and placing the photo on her blog. Thus launched the operationbeautiful.com website, where Boyle has compiled a variety of upbeat sayings, quotes, inspirational stories, and "tips for a healthier, more positive lifestyle." She continues her mission to help young women feel good about themselves with this colorful book. Chapters include "Your Beautiful Mind," "Turn Your Negative Thoughts Around!," "Bullying Isn't Beautiful," "Healthy Fuel," and "Sweat, Beautiful Sweat!" This chunky paperback is full of opportunities for young girls to chat with their mothers or older siblings about strategies for developing a healthy self- image. Reviewer: Debra Lampert-Rudman
