I Like Myself!I Like Myself!

Written By Karen Beaumont

Illustrated by David Catrow

I wish this little book had been around when I was a child. My thin frame and long hair made me an easy target for bullies. Mom and Dad boosted my self-esteem at every turn. This book, though, could have stood in when they weren’t available.

The girls giggle at the silly pictures, while I recognize the serious subject behind this ode to confidence. That is why I am filing this book in the resources section of our library for those times when Simone and Nadia need a lift.

    Wonderful! Do you have any suggestions on making friends for shy kids?

    Hmm, I don’t know. I don’t think we have any books on the shelves that address this, but I’ll be on the look out. In the meantime, find something a child has in common with another child. I also think exposing children to different social settings — festivals, library, restaurants — on a regular basis helps.
