It’s a book that promotes self-esteem among the young ones. It’s a must-read in my list. It’s never too early to teach the Little Miss to love herself. When you hear about stories of young girls, even as early as elementary school, having self-esteem issues, you’d want to make sure your own little girl has enough self-love before she is exposed to influences outside the home.
The pages are in bright hues and the illustrations fun and attractive, with a Dr Seuss feel to it. Definitely attractive to the kids.
There is a sassy, funny tone to the book which makes this serious theme fun and interesting for young readers. The rhymes are memorable, and I can imagine older preschoolers to enjoy reciting the book.
As the reader affirms her love for the different parts of her body and her personality, she also expands her vocabulary with interesting adjectives to describe herself. Wild, tame, different and the same. Silly nut. Crazy cuckoo bird. The description goes crazier to the end, which encourages a wilder imagination.
I love the message of this book, and it can resonate even with older readers. It can be a nice addition to her library if she connects with it. I can imagine the little bookworm growing into a teenager, finding the book in her collection and recalling fun memories which will hopefully reinforce self-esteem. At bedtime, a good way to end this book would be to ask your little ones what they like about themselves.
No matter if they stop and stare, no person
can make me feel that what they see
is all there really is to me.
