I am always looking for new reads for my third grader daughter and this one is perfect. She's already halfway through the book and is really enjoying it. No matter how old we are, we all struggle with feeling confident in who we are and question whether anyone else would like us. This book normalizes that experience and encourages us to not only make friends with ourselves but to also appreciate differences in others. Also, the illustrations throughout the book make every page a visual delight. I'm hoping the 'bonus' at the end of the book signals a sequel.
