Reviews

"The narrative of this book is written like a pep talk one could imagine hearing from a person with fully realized emotional intelligence... Many strategies for exhibiting self-love chosen by the child protagonists employing them are shown as valid, reinforcing that there is no one perfect way, just as there is no one perfect person... Skillfully provides the language to help readers remember--or learn--their abilities to treat themselves and others with gentleness." --Kirkus Reviews

"We all need to take a page from Dufayet's book: We can all forgive ourselves, and that's a pretty important part of self-love. Dufayet's book is a great reminder to adults and children alike that anyone can love themselves without the help of anyone else." --SDSU Children's Literature

"Dufayet's text is confident and assured, relating common childhood experiences and emotions in a way that is accepting of all, and encouraging. The illustrations by Zivoin beautifully convey the light and shadows, ups and downs, and round and rounds of childhood and life, with family, friends, and always with ourselves. This beautiful book also contains notes for parents and caregivers, by psychologist, Dr Julia Martin Burch, PhD, to assist with continuing the positive approach reflected in this story." --Kids' Book Review
