Rock What Ya Got Reviews

  • Jillian Heise

    I kinda adore this book. I want to give Viva a hug & share her with all the little (& not so little anymore) girls I know. That dedication says it all. And the illustrations! 😍 #rockwhatyagot #loveyourself #youdoyou

  • Liz Handler

    An artist is drawing a girl. Before the artist can make any changes, the girl comes to life and explains that you have got to "rock what ya got." Cute story with rhyme about being uniquely you and that it is perfect!

  • Michele Knott

    YES!

    Loved this fun story and the illustrations. "Rock what ya got" will be my new mantra, for sure!

    Those of us who review children's books and serve on book award committees are encouraged to focus on what the book is -- not what it's not. So I appreciated this book about rockin' what ya got. (Tangent: It makes me think of Todd Parr, a children's book author who is arguably not the most sophisticated artist or writer, but I really love his books because he rocks what he's got -- positivity, acceptance, and a lot of bold wacky colors.)

    It certainly feels like the picture book market is saturated with books telling children to be who they are (and that's not a bad thing). I'm not sure if this book really stands out in the field generally. It does highlight the creative process so would be a good book to share with a budding artist or in a creative writing class for young people.

    I also liked Berger's rhyming text. It was very bouncy and memorable.

  • Pam

    An artist is not happy with the young girl she drew so starts to erase her. The drawing grabs the eraser and reminds the artist to "rock what ya got." The artist thinks about what she wants to change and experiments with different hair style, body shapes, scenery, etc. The whole time her character reminds her to "rock what ya got."

    Use to talk about kids being okay with who they are.

  • Krysta

    I loved the pictures and, of course, the message is very positive (an on trend for picture books right now). However, it is difficult to read the book since the lines rhyme, but don't have matching meters.

  • Kristina Jean Lareau

    This is a mixed bag.

    I really love the meta illustrations and the story constructions and narrative.

    I don't think the text structure is smooth enough to make this story truly excellent. The artist a-ha and subsequent dislike just doesn't flow well.

    Still, though, a good read.

    I really hate when adults write picture books for other adults and then say they’re meant for kids. This is meant for adults as some sort of stupid “inspirational” and “youthful” perspective, but it’s too old for kids and not enough adults will care because there are approx. 1,000,000 more books out there with the same theme.
