What People are Saying About This
This is a lovely, hope inspiring book. It is clearly intended for children who think of themselves as alone and friendless. The text and gorgeously inviting illustrations teach children that they can reach out and form emotional connections by taking some initiative.
Sharen Peters' simple yet poignant poetry and Amanda Alter's vibrantly colored illustrations create a memorable story of lasting impact. I'm Just a Little Someone is a book that teachers of young children can read to their students to help them learn to embrace their feelings and understand the value of friendship.
