I Want Your Moo: A Story for Children about Self-Esteemby Marcella Bakur Weiner, Jill Neimark, JoAnn Adinolfi (Illustrator)
One of the greatest gifts we can give our children is a sense of self -- worth. Children who lack this feeling often express it as "not liking" a part of themselves. I Want Your Moo is a beautifully written and illustrated tale about selfesteem that features Toodles, a turkey who despises the sound of her "gobble gobble." Children will identify with Toodles, her struggle for selfacceptance, and eventual victory over self doubt when she "saves the day" by using the very voice she so dislikes. Each reading will help to reinforce a child's feeling that all of his or her attributes are a valuable part of a unique and good self.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
