Reviews for Liking Myself

"Liking Myself is ideal for children who struggle with low self esteem. I have found this book to be especially helpful for children who present with significant depressive symptoms, or are currently grieving."

"I appreciate that Liking Myself covers numerous topics about how to improve mind-body connection, including how to listen to what your body is saying to you. One cute drawing created for the Body Talk section shows a child sitting in a chair with little thought clouds coming from various parts of her body that read: "I am tight! I am clenched! I am relaxed!" This illustration serves as a great reminder to tune in to the state of our bodies, before the messages get louder or become painful. I highly recommend this book!"

"The important message in Liking Myself is for every person of every age and would prevent a lot of psychological disorders and depression in teen and adult life: It is OK and healthy to LIKE YOURSELF. I highly recommend this book as a MUST, not only for your child but also for yourself as a person and parent and for every teen. Everyone needs this book!"
