Book Review of :  The World Needs a Uniquely Happy You.


"The World Needs a Uniquely Happy You" by Makida Arshi and brilliantly illustrated by Siddhant Jumde. It is a delightful rhyming book that inspires children to cherish the "unique" in others, paving the path to a more compassionate world where the diversity within each of us is honored and embraced.

In our increasingly divided world, there is a pressing need for books that encourage embracing differences and breaking down barriers - a children's book is a great place to start. This book offers a much-needed solution, serving as a delightful way to teach our children empathy and love for others and become more compassionate and accepting.

Diverse children from different races, ethnicities, and abilities are beautifully portrayed in this story, emphasizing the importance of embracing all kinds of differences. The text compliments the illustrations, ensuring that the story shines through. Through rhyming lines, readers are introduced to various girls with unique differences and dreams, encouraging them to celebrate their own inherent beauty. This vibrant and uplifting tale highlights the fact that being different is what brings us all together. It's a colorful and inspiring book that celebrates and embraces the uniqueness in each and every one of us.

Arshi's book empowers children to embrace and celebrate diversity by providing them with the necessary tools and understanding to appreciate our differences. This book fosters an inclusive mindset by encouraging curiosity and allowing them to ask questions. It not only helps children to recognize their own uniqueness but also teaches them to appreciate the uniqueness of others. By nurturing respect and compassion, Arshi's book contributes to developing a respectful and compassionate society.

The book focuses on young girls, but the message is universal. In Arshi's book, a group of determined girls pledged not to give up on their dreams or let any opportunity slip away. This resounding message likely resonated with trailblazers like Amelia Earhart and Sally Ride, who faced ridicule when Earhart aspired to be a pilot, and Sally Ride, an Astronaut. It was a gender issue. These women ignored the naysayers and pursued their dreams with unwavering determination, ultimately achieving their goals. Arshi's book serves as a powerful reminder that believing in oneself and living out one's dreams is indeed possible.

The book celebrates the diverse career paths and roles of women. Its inclusive message and vibrant illustrations encourage young readers to dream big and embrace the many possibilities available to them. It talks in poetry about how accepting others' cultures, languages, and differences can be empowering. It beautifully emphasizes the importance of embracing one's unique qualities, dreams, abilities and spreading happiness worldwide.  "The World Needs a Uniquely Happy You" is a powerful book/lesson to inspire kids to embrace inclusion, pursue their dreams, and celebrate their uniqueness. We need more positive books like Arshi's to encourage our children and make a better world for all of us to live in.

About Makida Arshi


My name is Makida Arshi I am an author and a full-time nurse from Virginia. I am of Ethiopian descent and I live with my husband, Dr. Ismael Yussuf, and my three wonderful daughters Hira, Nina, and Ayah. I love to write, as it gives me thoughts and ideas an outlet, as well as helping me to help others with my reassuring energy. My main audience is young girls, whom I am passionate about convincing that they should grow up to be whoever they want to be. My main values of selflessness and kindness are ones I hold close to my heart. I have felt very strongly about helping people and making others happy ever since I was a child, which is why I knew that nursing was the profession for me. I have now been a nurse for over two decades, and it still brings me immense joy. I take great pride in being a mother and take the responsibility very seriously, using my life experiences in my storytelling to help children grow to be well-rounded, self-aware, confident adults. I take a great deal of my inspiration from women from all different walks of life. I have always struggled with the societal expectations of women. At certain points, I have had to make the choice between working, staying at home to look after my children . . . or both! In making those choices, I have often found that whichever one I made, there would always be some part of society that would have a problem with it. I hope to be instrumental in dismantling such expectations of women across the world. This is why I saw the need to write a book to encourage young readers, girls in particular, that it is OK to be what they choose to be as long as they are happy doing it, to embrace who they are and live their truth.

It is a very very wonderful book. It increased the desire in the children to not to just fulfill their dreams but also be powerful and accept each other. This is the most wonderful book I have read in my life. It also gives you a desire to complete your dreams and do whatever to make your dreams possible.  It also teaches us about UNITY IN DIVERSITY. It also gives a teaching to not to judge anyone on the basses of their caste , race or maybe family background. It gives a career path for young ones. It helps me and changed my life. It motivates women to work on their dreams and forget what the people, the society will say. Thank You 🙏
