When I Feel Good about Myself

I feel good about myself. Somebody loves me just as I am. I don’t have to look like anyone else, be the same size, or do the same things. It’s fine to be me. This book offers children positive and upbeat examples about being themselves. The author portrays a very young guinea pig and friends feeling good about themselves through common situations readers will relate to. Together, the text and art will foster self-esteem and independence.

  • 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…The book could serve as a healthy reminder of the importance of treating oneself and others with respect.
