Each Spring, select books are recognized for the high quality they represent.  Book awards guide parents, educators, librarians and others in choosing the best materials for youth.  Tween You and Me: A Preteen Guide to Becoming Your Best Self  is among the acclaimed juvenile non-fiction titles of 2010.

Tween You and Me is a positive and empowering book that provides tools to build confidence and self-worth during the process of identity development that occurs in the preteen years.  Using the tools in this book helps the young reader to build and sustain a healthy self-image.

Self-consciousness escalates between the ages of eight to twelve, and many tweens begin to define their self-worth according to peer approval” says Deb Dunham, author of Tween You and Me.   “Learning to silence the bully within helps them transform the destructive self-doubt that is common among adolescents.  Healthy self-esteem is a critical component to thriving in the teen years and beyond,” states Ms. Dunham.

The three associations that have selected Tween You and Me for its excellence in publishing are The Indie Book Awards,  ForeWord‘s Book of the Year Awards, and USA Book News awards.  Each of the contests are open to independent publishers and authors worldwide and are designed to discover distinctive books across a number of genres.

While self-help books are often thought of as the domain of adults, this first-of-its-kind title is a comforting companion to any girl going through the exciting but challenging process of becoming a teenager.  Parents will find that this book’s instructional yet empathetic style provides an opportunity for meaningful dialogue with their daughter about self-respect and a positive self-image.
