The Message in The Mirror was written to inspire children to uncover the beauty inside. It teaches children about self-esteem through a vividly illustrated story. Aria is a smart, talented and pretty young girl who struggles with bullying and low self esteem. Since she only believes that other people are pretty or popular, she constantly seeks validation of her worth. That is until one day when something happens that helps her realize the Message in the Mirror; a message that was there all along.
