I Like Myself! by Karen Beaumont

I Like Myself! by Karen Beaumont Illustrator David Catrow 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. The sturdy board book is just right for little hands.

I love everything about this book!!!!!! As a black woman raising a black boy in the US of A it is extremely important to me that my child sees himself represented in all aspects of his life. I find that this book brilliantly addresses many of the obstacles and insecurities that people of color face in this country in a fun and colorful way. I think all children should read it. Until we ALL understand one another's journey things will NOT CHANGE. Ignorance is only bliss if you are privileged enough to be ignorant.
