I love when books I've reviewed in the past get a makeover. I've actually reviewed both Liking Myself and The Mouse, The Monster, and Me. However, they have recently had a makeover, so I'm taking a second look!
The Mouse, the Monster and Me teaches youngsters assertiveness, helping them find a balance between their aggressive and passive selves. It introduces the concept of treating others fairly, making responsible (smart) choices, and saying “no” to trouble.
Liking Myself helps build children's self-esteem. The games and activities help readers discover their unique abilities and identify and manage their feelings.
Both these books are awesome. I really like them. They teach your kids that they are special. I can definitely see how these can even help prevent bullying. I love what they have done with the illustrations now. They are eye catching and really catch the kids and reel them in. I actually think it makes the books more exciting.
If you have kids, both these books are a great read for them!
