Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-This simple treatise on self-esteem doesn't tell a story per se, but instead serves as a pep talk that connects a number of platitudes: "Somebody loves me just as I am"; "Some things- are hard. But that's OK"; "I feel good when I can help"; etc. The central character is a plump, spunky guinea pig. Her self-assurance and cheerful attitude are winning, and the watercolor-and-pencil illustrations play a large role in keeping the message light. Reminiscent of the immediacy of Jane Dyer's art, they are playful and show, up close, the support of family and friends, indoors and out, and in all seasons. The book could serve as a healthy reminder of the importance of treating oneself and others with respect.-Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
