Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gisela Jernigan
Vivid, child-like colored pencil drawings make up this exuberant alphabet book showing anthropomorphic pigs, frogs and mice engaged in many lively activities, like swinging, rocketing to the moon and bravely finding a monster under the bed. Fans of Carlson's other picture books will enjoy encountering old friends here, as they are encouraged to believe that, "Feeling good about me is as easy as ABC!"
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-KThis concept book vibrates with bright colors, happy thoughts, and joie de vivre. Beginning with "I am Awesome, Brave, and Cheerful," it goes on to present 20 other ways to feel good about oneself, concluding with "Yawn...I need a good night's sleep so tomorrow...I can Zoom on!" Carlson's cheerful pig, frog, and their friends will delight youngsters as they are reassured about their own emerging personalities. All are shown in large, uncluttered illustrations as they engage in a variety of activities, from a mouse and a pig blasting off in a rocket for "I have big Dreams," to a rabbit banging on a pot for "And sometimes, I'm Noisy!" A storytime natural.Virginia Opocensky, formerly at Lincoln City Libraries, NE
Kirkus Reviews
The self-reliant pig, star of I Like Me! (1988), is back in a cheery companion book that celebrates the self.

"I am Awesome," proclaims the star-shirted pig to introduce the letter A. Mice in Swiss-cheese boxer shorts and juggling frogs join her in a romp through the alphabet. Pig and company help a sick Friend, act with great Imagination, Kindly feed the birds, and sometimes make Mistakes, but are always Polite and good at Sharing. Carlson's bright yellows, greens, and magentas express the joy of a child trying out a brand-new set of felt markers, and bouncy animal characters fairly vault off the pages in the sheer delight of self-expression.
