Everybody's Special

By Tamara Rattigan
ISBN 9780993366109
Winter 2015


"Everybody's Special" is a bright and colorfully illustrated, rhyming children's story book which aims to inspire children to celebrate their individuality & uniqueness and delivers the message of acceptance, understanding & confidence in a child friendly format. 

The book is aimed to young children first beginning to read (3-7 years), although children of all ages, even adults, will enjoy the book and the message it is conveying. 

"Everybody's Special" aims to inspire children to embrace the things that make them different from one another, as its these “things” that makes us all the unique individuals we are. 

“It’s good that were all different in the way we look and the things we do, as each of these unique features are what makes you….YOU!”

Author's Biography

Tamara Rattigan is a successful graphic designer from the South East of England. She is the author & illustrator of Everybody's Special, which is the first in a series of children's illustrated story books, which aim to inspire children. Visit for more information.


RJane Reviews Amazon: This is a gorgeous book and I can see it will be greatly received by the younger generation. It brings a good subject to the forefront, whilst being enclosed in beautiful illustrations and a poetic flow. 

I would love to see this in paperback or hardback, as a gift for my niece and nephews. 
The concept that everyone is different but special is an important message to children, particularly in our growing multicultural and ethnic society. Acceptance is important and this children's book entwines that message very cleverly.

Fantastic book. Purchased for my granddaughter as a Christmas present. She loved reading it over and or again! The pictures are very detailed and encourage discussion! Would definitely recommend.
This book is an important additional tool for those working with children to address bullying and the importance of mutual respect across spectrums of faith, culture and other aspects of personhood. Well done Tamara Rattigan. The next generation will have reason to be thankful for your work - nit just the message in the fabulous artwork and storyline, but for the spirit in which it is offered.
A genuine childrens book with special colourful illustrations and nice applicable texts.
Lovely book for all kids.
Superb book which is greatly inspiring for the younger generation. The message is really important particularly as we live in such a diverse, multi cultural society. From a young age its important that we understand that each and everyone of us is "Special" and unique regardless of our physical features, our interests etc.Enjoy being yourself, as your great just the way you are!
My daughter loves this book & the drawings are really good and appeal to young children.

Good book.
Fantastic book and illustration!
Excellent - really hope you make it to the finals - and me too - so we can enjoy a glass of bubbly!!! Good luck! Rachel :)
Excellent children's book
As a teachers aid, I have found the book 'Everybody's Special' very helpful in teaching non-English speaking students, due to it's simplicity and down to earth speech. The illustrations are bright and clear to understand for people of all ages. I also do volunteer duties at an aged care home when most of the in-patients suffer dementia, and I introduced this book on my last visit and got a surprising amount of interest from some of the patients. I feel this well written and illustrated book will not only be good for children of all ages, but for parents as well. Anna Roberts
Great story worthy of a win.
Good Luck! Wishing you every success with this beautiful book, you truly deserve it!
Wishing you the best of luck! Fantastic book with great meaning

Looks like a lovely book. Best of luck Tamara.
Keeping my fingers crossed for you my friend x
