7 Things Your Kids Will Remember About You When They're Grown Up

Text and Tunes: Freckleface Strawberry

Actress and Academy Award nominee Julianne Moore may be a Cover Girl now, but growing up she felt a bit more like a "Freckleface Strawberry." And, that is the title of the first time author's new children's book.

The fair skinned, redheaded mother of two — son, Caleb, 9 and daughter, Liv, 5, wrote the tale of a spirited little girl wishing her freckles away to help kids feel more comfortable in their own skin. Featuring colorful illustrations by LeUyen Pham, the 32-page picture book is a must read.

Celebrate your child's unique traits and Children's Book Week by reading this story at bedtime.

I have red hair and tons of feckles and when I was little, I hated them!! Now, I wouldn't change them for anything. I think this is a great idea for a book...I probably could have used it when I was younger!

They had an except of the book in Parents magazine (or maybe it was Parenting) it seems like a really cute story. I plan on picking it up for my daughter :)
