Perfect Picture Book Friday :-)

I Like Myself

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.


Great website for kids with games and activities. Click here!
