Reviews - What do customers think about I'm Gonna Like Me: Letting Off a Little Self-Esteem?

They're Gonna Like This Book  Mar 7, 2008
I read this book to my six year old son. It holds his attention with its detailed illustrations of children who are obviously asserting their individuality and self esteem.

So far, we have several of Jamie Lee Curtis' books and each of them has been wonderful.

I'd recommend it to anyone whose child needs a bit of encouragement in the confidence department.
Good Choice  Jan 7, 2007
This was purchased for our grandson. He enjoys having it read to him and once again, when he can read it on his own, hopefully will continue to appreciate the intended message.
You're Gonna Like This Book!  Jan 4, 2007
I'm Gonna Like Me is a cute, engaging and esteem building book that is a pleasure to read. The age range listed for this is 4-8, but I really think this is one of those books that is a perfect read aloud (especially given that most kids up to age 8 can't read cursive and half the text/font is cursive) for 0-6, kids older than that probably aren't going to be as engaged in the message of the book, as was the case with my kids. My 6 year old loved it, but my 8 year old didn't enjoy the story as much, though she did enjoy pouring over the pictures with her brother (and reading him the badges and stuff) after the reading and they got a good chuckle out of all the zany and vivid imagery used.

In the end, the message given is one that is necessary, especially for younger children and would make for good story time discussion with kids ages 4-6 and maybe a little older...there's nothing intrinsically wrong with you if you get an answer wrong, someone doesn't like you or you get picked last. The message is that these things don't FEEL so great, but they don't affect who you are or your worth as a person and that is a strong, positive message. I give it 4 stars, a great message that can't be stressed enough to young appreciate who you are and try all the things you wan to try because even when you're wrong, you learn from it!
Great   Oct 8, 2005
This book was a new one to me and one that I will use year after year with my class.
Kids and adults alike loved it.
I'm Gonna Like Me: Letting Off a Little Self-Esteem  Sep 14, 2005
As a psychotherapist specializing in children, this is a lovely fun book for reinforcing self esteem and helping us accept our foibles.
