Michael Redhead Champagne’s welcoming call to action will inspire young readers to contribute to their communities by recognizing their own gifts and talents.


Everyone has a gift. Every gift is different, and every gift is special. Our world needs you to share your gift.

What is your gift? How can you use your gift to help others?

We Need Everyone empowers children to identify their gifts and use them to overcome challenges, achieve goals, and strengthen communities. Inspiring and uplifting, this interactive picture book celebrates diverse cultures, perspectives, and abilities through playful illustrations. Perfect for reading aloud.

Perfect for a conversation about social and emotional skills….a great springboard to talk about the important skills we need as humans and how sharing our gifts impacts those around us.

The gifts of children shine as bright as the stars in the sky…no gift is too small and no gift should be dismissed.
