I am a firm believer in this book, every child should own this! I am buying 3 copies for my grandchildren as well as for myself, and I suggested the purchase to my local library. I can't believe they don't have it already, it's such an important message! I'm lovable, I'm lovable, I'm lovable!
This is a fantastic book for children. I bought this book for my young children when it first came out in the early 90's. It was their favorite book and my kids, who are all in college, remember me reading it to them. I just bought a copy to give to a friend of mine for her newborn daughter. I am a firm believer of reading to children at a very early age, especially a book like "Lovables in the Kingdom of Self-Esteem".
In this day and age when children struggle with self esteem daily, I thought this book would be great for my three granddaughters who are Leah 6, Tiarra 8, and Destinee 8. As Tiarra read to me, she became very excited. She really believes if she repeats...I'm Lovable, I'm Lovable, I'm Lovable... that your lovable self will magically grow!! This is a wonderful book. We can't wait to read it again!
