This Google Slides deck accompanies "The World Needs Who You Were Made to Be" written by Joanna Gaines. It's a beautiful story with colourful illustrations that helps students to understand that everyone has their own unique talents! The story teaches us that just as the sky is more beautiful with all the different colours of the hot-air balloons floating around, so is the world when we all celebrate our differences!
