Local author reads her new children’s book at Chick-fil-A

Local author Tamara Pray Frazier spent her Saturday morning reading her new children’s book to kids at the Hinesville Chick-fil-A.

On Dec. 14 the author read her new children’s book, “Your own kind of Beautiful” to a group of children inside the play area of Chick-fil-A. The book informed the children about accepting their own unique qualities and features and to do the same for others.

The book introduces readers to the family and best friend of 7-year-old Daisy, who Frazier describes as a beautiful African American girl experiencing confusion in defining the difference between true beauty and physical beauty. 

Frazier said the book can be used to boost self-esteem and self-worth in girls cross culturally. 

The author had previously published a book called, “In His Own Time,” about Bradwell Institute girls’ basketball coach Faye Baker and her triumph over the events that left her paralyzed from the waist down. But Frazier said this was her first venture into writing for children.

She said she decided to write the book after being encouraged by a relative to target the audience she is most familiar with.

“I work with kids at the high school level but in order to teach them and mold them you need to reach out to the younger kids,” she said.

“Your own kind of Beautiful” is the first in a series of children’s books she plans to write as part of her new “Walking with Grace,” series.

After the reading the group gathered in the diner and created Christmas ornaments.
