Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous This is a fabulous book in it's own right, but as a self-esteem builder for children is wonderful. The premise being children have pictures taken of their best feature and then write about why they like that part of themselves the best. As a teacher we have done this activity in our classroom with great results.
