by Pat Palmer, Ed.D.; illus. by Sue Ramá Liking Myself is an encouraging book and a valuable resource for building self-esteem and emotional stability in children 5 to 11 years of age. By writing or drawing responses to a variety of self-esteem activities, children develop social and emotional skills.
The book teaches children to listen to and talk about feelings. They learn to manage the full range of their emotions—including anxiety, anger, depression, and being overwhelmed—without hurting others. It also helps children develop emotional literacy, which in turn helps curb and prevent bullying. Includes simple and fun activities and exercises to help reinforce the lessons.
