School Library Journal
K-Gr 2A collection of 26 poems intended to boost children's self-esteem. A companion leader's guide to the book is available and the two titles may make an appropriate addition to a guidance counselor's curriculum. However redeeming the subjects, thoughkindness, friendship, truthfulness, dependabilitythe poetry itself is undistinguished. It is set in traditional forms, such as quatrains and couplets, but the meter and rhyming patterns are irregular. Yet it is not free verse: "I can choose\To win or lose.\I know it's up to me.\If I think that\I'm a winner,\That's what I will be!" The black-and-white photographs are of Lalli's second-grade class and the photographer's son; they have poorly defined subjects, and many seem staged and lifeless. Students accustomed to the glamour of today's colorful picture books will not choose this one from the shelves because of its unattractive appearance. The poems could be discussed in a group setting, but librarians will want to look for the many better books about self-esteem and interpersonal relationships.Betty Teague, Blythe Academy of Languages, Greenville, SC
