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.
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.
