Macey Thompson's Tales

I have recently become obsessed with collecting books for my future elementary classroom. I look forward to creating an online library of some of my favorites and planning how I will use each book in my classroom.

I Like Myself!

I Like Myself! - Karen Beaumont, David Catrow

This text tells the story of a child who realizes aspects of herself that are not most desirable, but she likes who she is regardless. I see myself reading this at the beginning of the year to help students feel more comfortable and confident in who they are at the moment. This book can teach kids that it is okay to have warts or freckles, and most importantly that it is still okay to like yourself with those things. After reading, I would like to encourage my students to draw a picture of themselves and write about the things that they like about themselves. The DRA level for I Like Myself! is 18.
