“I Love Me” is a board book about self-acceptance for kids. In an age of social media and constant comparison on sites like Instagram and Facebook, this type of book resonates with me. It is something important to me that I want to teach my kids. You are different. You are unique. You are special just the way you are. Thank you, Mister Rogers. And, I love you just the way you are. I love you because you are you.
“I Love Me” is beautifully and uniquely illustrated. The colors and shapes and style all stand out from other books for children. The book is geared for older kids to read, but could be read to younger kids who would understand and could repeat after you as you read. Each page is a declaration for a child to say something they love about themselves. I can tell my kids that I love them, but I want them to love them too!
This is a great book that should be in every family’s library as a reminder to each child that they can love themselves just the way they are and that is a very good thing!
