Strong Like Me cover

A heartwarming picture-book story about finding your own ways to be strong, from writer and social commentator Kelechi Okafor.

“A BEAUTIFUL celebration of STRENGTH in all its forms.”
Dapo Adeola


Kamara loves being super strong - it makes her feel fizzy and zappy! But her classmates and their negative words lead her to question herself and the confidence she has in her physical ability.

With sport's day and the Big Race looming, does Kamara have what it takes to reach the finish line?

Strong Like Me is a timely picture-book debut by writer, social commentator and podcast host, Kelechi Okafor. This inspirational story sets out to help children discover their power, champion themselves, and be unapologetically secure in who they are. Packed full of heart, the story opens important conversations around ability, intersectionality, race and identity.
