In my opinion this is a wonderful book. I like this book because of the language and character. The character in this book is very relatable. One thing that I love is that the character never introduces herself, she just says me. I love this because it helps the reader really relate to the girl in the book, they could name her their name or make up any name. This character is also relatable because the author does not give her any imaginative body parts or feelings. This is helpful for the reader to relate to when they are talking about positive body image. I also love the language the author uses in this book. It is very creative. My favorite quote in this book is “Even when I look a mess, I still don’t like me any less.” This is important for readers to understand that they do not have to be perfect to love themselves. I also like how descriptive the author is. For example, she explains liking her wide hip as “loving her hippo hips” and loving her snoring as “loving her snout that snorts.”
In conclusion, the author, Karen Beaumont, wrote this story so individuals would love themselves even if they look different than other individuals. She does a great job of relating different personal characteristics to silly things that would make people laugh and become comfortable with themselves. This is a very powerful, silly, and relatable book that will help all ages to accept themselves no matter what. ( )

A little girl explains why she is able to love herself by being herself.

This is the story of a girl who loves everything about herself. Her hair, feet, face, hands, arms EVERYTHING. I love that she says, "I don't care what anyone thinks," several times throughout the books. She has very high self-esteem and confidence. ( )

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.
