Book Reviews

I Love Myself

 "This little book contains a bundle of positive messages that can be used to work through a range of social skills and mental health promotion topics with young children. The themes running through the pages are illustrated wonderfully by children of all ages, and the words are pitched at a level that most early readers could cope with (although the book would lend itself equally well to paired reading or use in a kindergarten or school group reading setting).

It uses examples of everyday situations and tools to help children negotiate common social challenges such as being an individual, making friends, doing things for others and communication skills. The beauty of this book is that it delivers these messages in a light, colourful and accessible package for all ages."

"The pictures and statements found on the pages are very moving ... the contents fit so closely with our school-wide values and attitudes. And the blank pages at the back, where a child can write their own messages about why they love themselves, is my favourite. I've used these pages so often with children to boost their self-esteem"

I Love My Dog

"Respect for animals is one of the lessons that children have to learn in life, in this story it is respect for dogs. And one of the ways this respect is additionally taught in this book is via the important section entitled Charlie's Safety Tips that educate the young reader on how to relate safely with dogs e.g. let a dog come to you, offer your hand and when you pat a dog stroke only the dog's chin, chest or shoulder - very wise as dogs are territorial and while we think we own a dog in fact the dog owns us and we are part of its territory."

"I love my Dog" is a fantastic book which captures the essence of living with a dog in the form of beautiful drawings by young dog lovers themselves...

The pictures highlight in a fun way the importance of looking after your animal from the joy of giving your dog a bath to ensuring they get plenty of exercise.

Throughout the book you are reminded of the true blessings that dogs bring, "I love my dog" is a wonderful creation...it gets five woofs from me :)
