I Love Being Me

Liberty Belle--Libby for short--is a confident girl who accepts and appreciates her own beauty and uniqueness. In I Love Being Me, Libby describes the things she loves and introduces us to her diverse set of friends, whom she loves even more. Each friend is beautiful and different, but at the end of the day, Libby loves being who she was created to be. She only wants to look and be herself!

It's Nice To Be Nice

Feisty and confident Liberty Belle--(Libby for short) is back in It's Nice to Be Nice. This time she helps her friends gain confidence and stand up to their not so nice classmate named Wyatt. Wyatt bullies the other kids at school, and Libby has no tolerance for Wyatt's behavior. Inspired by her father's words of wisdom, "It's nice to be nice," Libby helps to teach her friends how to stand up for themselves. Together, they show Wyatt how to be kind to others.
