Say It urges everyone to speak their truth, to share their feelings, and get it off their chests! Whatever is on your mind, whatever is burdening your soul, SAY IT!
In Diego Estebo’s charmingly illustrated book, Say It, Nika has a really big problem. She’s carrying around a secret. She wants to tell someone, but she’s afraid people will laugh at her, or worse, get angry. Sometimes it feels like the secret is breaking her back. When she can’t take it anymore, she tells his friend Hailu. The moment it comes out, the secret doesn’t seem so big and immediately feels that she is not alone.
Say It is a powerful message for young and old; do not allow your secrets to make you miserable! Find someone you trust and say it! A call to action for so many personal and emotional topics, Say It will help children find the courage to be themselves, to take away the burden of hiding feelings and to feel they are not alone.
Illustrated with colors, textures, crayons, and inks, Estebo puts love into every fresh and original page.
About the Author
Diego is an illustrator, graphic designer, and visual artist. He lives in Pontevedra, a small town very close to the sea with a well-stocked library.
When he was little his favorite time of the week was when his dad would take him to the bookstore to pick out a new comic book. Now as an adult, this is still his favorite thing to do. Books are home for him.
Being an artist has allowed him to live in such amazing places as Rome, Gujarat, Cochabamba, or Buenos Aires.
When he works, he likes to combine everything he knows about illustration, graphic design, and art to experiment with colors, textures, and techniques. He often illustrates covers or stories written by others, and now he is learning to tell stories with his drawings.
This is his first book for children and he has enjoyed doing it so much that, surely, it will not be the last.
