About the Book

I Celebrate My Voice is a fun and lovely introduction to what it means to use your voice. With breathtaking illustrations, this book shows young children how limitless their voices are. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from – you have a voice and it matters.
My Review

I Celebrate My Voice Teaches A Lot About Individuality and Personal Voice. As parents, we get so caught up in "one size fits all" mentalities--in education and expectations. I remember checking off development and growth milestones when my girls were babies and toddlers. I remember worrying about them being left behind or falling behind. Now--as I look back, I realize that each of my daughters developed just fine. Each one grew at her own pace in her own way. Even though my three looked the same and shared the same genes, each child was an individual with their own voice. I love that the author includes a diverse view of children in this book as she encourages readers to understand and find their personal voices and gifts. This book teaches little ones a lot about various ways to use their voices--but it also reminds caregivers of the individuality and limitlessness possessed by all.


 I Celebrate My Voice Shares Simple Text and Lovely Illustrations. The author does a beautiful job choosing an assortment of talents and gifts for reader voices to share--and the illustrator does a wonderful job including a diverse group of children throughout the book. It is an excellent way for children to explore and see the value of their individual "superpowers."  


Would I Recommend I Celebrate My Voice by Nonku Kunene Adumetey? I love finding books that support children in "finding" themselves! I love books that encourage individuality and confidence in talents and abilities. As the author explores how children can (and should) develop and use their voices--readers will see that their voices give them strength and "superpower" in their worlds. I recommend it for preschool and young elementary readers. It is helpful for diverse communities and differently-abled children who are finding their paths.

Meet the Author

Nonkululeko Kunene Adumetey (also known as Nonku) is an award-winning author, loving wife and devoted mother of two happy toddlers. Her children both love singing, story time, and tasting home-cooked cuisines. When Nonku tastes delicious food, she hums a blissful tune, which she never realized until both her children started humming along.

Nonku was born in the Kingdom of Eswatini, where she lived until she was 16. She left to complete high school in Canada and later moved to the United States to pursue her college education.

Her passion is to inspire her children and all children to celebrate who they are, understand their differences are beautiful, know their diversity is a strength, and believe their voices are should be heard.

Her hero is her late father, Themba Micah Kunene, a man from humble beginnings who worked tirelessly to provide a full life for his eight children. Her father’s unconditional love, wisdom, selflessness, and work ethic inspire the core of Nonku’s principles and life mottos. One of his favorite mottos was "umtsentse uhlaba usamila”, a saying about a strong grass that gets deeply rooted during its early stages of development. The essence of this saying embodies the core of early intervention and teaching young minds early so that they grow up strong and informed about the world. This is what inspires Nonku to write children’s book, to inspire and empower young minds for a greater future.
