Perfect Picture Book Friday :-)

I Like Myself

written by Karen BeaumontCatrowHarcourt Children's Books (May 1, 2004)

:Ages 4 and up

 Theme:

Self-esteem

Opening:

I like myself!

I'm glad I'm me.

There's no one else I'd rather be.

I like my eyes, my ears, my nose.

I like my fingers and my toes.

Synopsis:

High on energy and imagination, this ode to self-esteem encourages kids to appreciate everything about themselves--inside and out. Messy hair? Beaver breath? So what! Here's a little girl who knows what really matters.
At once silly and serious, Karen Beaumont's joyous rhyming text and David Catrow's wild illustrations unite in a book that is sassy, soulful--and straight from the heart.

Why I loved it: 

 Beautiful rhyme, funny illustrations from Catrow who is a political cartoonist make this book so much fun to read. It teaches self respect. Something everyone needs to have. AWESOME! BODACIOUS! Truly wonderful story.

This looks like and sounds like a wonderful book for kids. I hope lots of teachers add this to their classroom book collections. I also hope parents buy this book for their kids. A child's self esteem should be built up.
