I Love Myself

Orca. Feb. 2024. 32p. Tr $21.95. ISBN 9781459836181.
Gr 1-4–A former childhood educator presents her latest book in this new title that showcases the simple, everyday opportunities a child can encounter to reinforce positive thoughts and self-love. This inner self is depicted as a cuddly, oversized, bunny-like imaginary friend who is always right behind the child, giving affection and support. Each friendly, watercolor illustration’s mantra begins with “I love myself when—” which is followed by an action, activity, or feeling the child experiences. The repetition reminds readers that self-love is a mindset to be continuously practiced and repeated.
VERDICT This positive collection can be read alongside Todd Parr and Peter Reynolds selections.
