THE WORLD NEEDS WHO YOU WERE MADE TO BE

DESCRIPTION

The World Needs Who You Were Made to Be follows a group of diverse children as they each build their very own hot-air balloons. As the kids work together, leaning in to their own skills and processes, to fill the sky with beautiful colors, we discover that the same is true for life-it's more beautiful when our differences are celebrated.

With plenty of pink, a bounty of blue, orange and green and yellow too, this vibrant hot-air balloon adventure celebrates every child's one-of-a-kind strengths as well as teamwork and acceptance of differences. This timeless message of sharing our individual gifts is especially important in our world today. Everything can be made more beautiful when we kindly share our talents and abilities, lend a helping hand, and do our best to take care of one another.

Together with Joanna, you and your kids will take a journey of growth and imagination as you learn in full color that "the world needs who you were made to be. Most of all, the world needs both you and me."

About the Author

Joanna Gaines and her husband, Chip Gaines, are co-founders and co-owners of Magnolia Homes, Magnolia Market and Magnolia Realty in Waco, Texas. Together, they also host HGTV’s Fixer Upper, where Joanna serves as the lead designer and Chip handles construction. Joanna appreciates the old ways of living, simple and hard-working with home at the center of it all.

Joanna, also known by friends and fans as "Jo" or "JoJo", was born in Kansas and raised in the Lone Star State. She graduated from Baylor University with a degree in Communications and was inspired to join the world of design while interning in New York City. Joanna decided to open a home decor shop, Magnolia Market, in 2003; bringing her NYC-inspired ideas and eye for design back to Waco, Texas. She soon discovered this passion complemented Chip’s construction experience, and together they began remodeling and flipping homes.

Recently Chip and Joanna partnered to write their autobiography: The Magnolia Story. The Magnolia Story details their life together; from how they met and their first home renovation projects, to how they came to have their own TV show and much more.

In between filming for Fixer Upper, their home renovation projects, and managing the Magnolia businesses, Joanna enjoys life on their farm, writing for her blog and spending time cooking family recipes in her kitchen. Gardening soothes her soul and being with her four kids dominates all other favorites.
