The Courage to Speak up
Nadia Ronquillo had the opportunity to illustrate the picture book "The Courage to Speak Up" by the Australian author Jarrod Menezes.
"Meet Blake, a brave bunny with a big heart. In The Courage to Speak Up, Blake loves playing and having fun, but a not-so-fun game with his babysitter, Alfred, makes him feel sad and worried. With the help of his loving mum, Blake finds the courage to share his feelings and learns that speaking up is a superpower! Join Blake on his journey to discover the importance of using his voice and being open about his emotions. The Courage to Speak Up is a heartwarming story about respect, trust, and standing up for what's right, perfect for kids who wish to be heard.
The Courage to Speak Up stands as a testament to Jarrod Menezes' dedication to nurturing a generation that respects boundaries, values consent, and knows the significance of using their voices to create a safer world."
Hope you enjoy some of the final illustrations of the book.
