Thank you so much to author Suzanne Wylde for providing me with a review copy.
Review: I love this book so incredibly much, there are so many things I love about this book, so many. This is a book that should be read with every child honestly it just should be, they will learn so much and see so much representation.
It is so inclusive featuring children of all different walks of earth, from many diversities, multiple disabilities and they are drawn in such a beautiful careful way. Children that don’t generally get to see themselves will finally get to see themselves within this book.
The book itself has such a beautiful and sweet story teaching children about emotions and self love, it is written in a nice easy way to understand and a child that is reading would be able to read it themselves. It also provides stopping parts teaching children ways to deal with different emotions or to say to themselves that they love themselves, such a sweet addition.
I really adored this book it’s so sweet and so vital and is such a great way of teaching young children some very important things. I highly recommend this book to anyone with young children or teaching young children.
