Over thirty years ago, Pat Palmer and Louise Hart met at their first graduate school class in Greeley, CO. Pat was the founder and director of the Assertiveness Training Institute of Denver, and when she spoke she surprised some of the men and the "nice girls" in the class, including Louise, to whom she offered a scholarship to her assertiveness class. Pat's dissertation on teaching assertiveness from an early age was published as two children's books, Liking Myself, and The Mouse, the Monster and Me. They became international bestsellers in six languages, selling over a half a million copies around the globe, but went out of print in 2000.
Now, ten years later, these two long-time favorites which teach social-emotional skills, are being revised and released with help from Pat's long time friend Louise Hart, Ed. D. Liking Myself, written for ages 5-10 and charmingly illustrated by Betty L. Shondeck, discusses the importance of liking yourself, having feelings, talking about your feelings, allowing yourself to be different, body talk, and letting go. It offers advice on how to handle yourself when you feel depressed, upset, or overwhelmed. There are several ideas, including games, to improve assertiveness and build emotional literacy. The official republication date is January, 2010.
