This is a large board book
This is a great story that talks about having a positive self-esteem. The description stating that this copy is in hardcover-format is misleading. This is a large board book (which I discovered after going to pick up my site-to-store order). I am an Elementary School Media Specialist so I purchase books all of the time and I had thoroughly combed through the description before purchasing. This purchase is for my toddler, so thankfully having this format wasn't too disappointing. If you prefer the hardcover format, you must choose the school & library version.

Reading Karen Beaumont...
Reading Karen Beaumont's I Like Myself! - a self-esteem picture-book with both textual and visual references to the classic work of Dr. Seuss - this morning on my morning commute, and then comparing my reactions to those of almost every other online reviewer, I once again have that strange feeling that I am out of step with the current zeitgeist. I know that the received wisdom these days when it comes to child development is that the promotion of self esteem is paramount, but the sing-songy self affirmation here just felt a little... well, narcissistic. Our cute-as-a-button narrator informs us that she likes herself, and she informs us repeatedly. In any and all circumstances. Regardless of what others think. Because "I'm me," she tells us... Perhaps this one struck such a sour note with me because I read it at the same time as another picture-book (Eric A. Kimmel's Rosh Hashanah story, Gershon's Monster) that emphasized how disastrous the consequences can be, for ourselves and for others, when we refuse to really acknowledge our transgressions, but I finished this story with the feeling (one I've had increasingly, of late) that it was promoting, however unintentionally, feelings at the expense of ethics. Don't mistake me: I want children to like themselves, generally speaking. But I'm not on board with the message that they should always like themselves, in every circumstance, and regardless of the feelings and opinions of others. That sensation of self loathing, when we do wrong, is called conscience, and it would be a pretty horrific world without it. Now, I understand that this is meant to be a lighthearted picture-book 'romp,' and I imagine that there are those who will respond by thinking I am either a) taking it too seriously, or b) underestimating the importance of self esteem building, in a negative world. All I can say in response is a) I'm a pretty serious person, and b) although I do believe feelings are important, if forced to choose between feelings and ethics, I'd choose ethics every time.

Good book

This is a great book for kids. Good teaching/lesson book.

A young girl talks abo...

A young girl talks about her appearance, likes, and dislikes in an extremely positive way. She says "There's no one else I'd rather be." This message is extremely important. I love how confident she is while still being able to recognize that she is different from others. No one is perfect and this little girl has discovered it already! This would be a great book to share with children to teach them that everyone is unique. I also think that this book is a great self-esteem builder. It honestly made me think about the way I look, act, and the things I like and dislike in a positive. This is not always easy to do.

This book was truly lo...

This book was truly loved by my Kindergarten class. They laughed and were able to practice reading our first few sight words (I and like!) The illustrations are attention grabbing but most of all the concept of liking yourself no matter what definitely sticks with the young readers. After reading we drew self portraits and this book definitely helped them to take a close look at their features and why they are unique and special because of them.

This is a really cute ...

This is a really cute rhyming book about a little girl who simply loves herself. She loves her crazy hair, the way she dresses, and even when she's messy. I Love this book because the little girl in the story is very confident. No matter what she looks like or what other people think she loves herself. classroom extension 1. Have the students write one thing that they love about themselves 2. Discuss good ways how everyone is different.
