Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Celebrate liking yourself! Through alternating points of view, a girl's and a boy's, Jamie Lee Curtis's triumphant text and Laura Cornell's lively artwork show kids that the key to feeling good is liking yourself because you are you. Like the duo's first New York Times best-seller, Today I Feel Silly and Other Moods That Make My Day, this is an inspired book to rejoice in and share. I'm Gonna Like Me will have kids letting off some self-esteem in no time!

Review:

"Though the message is both catchy and effective...it's Cornell's humorous, detailed, ink-and-watercolor illustrations that give this volume true pizzazz. She hits just the right note of fear-tinged bravura with the characters' vividly imagined antics." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The text walks a thin line between positive and saccharine, but...the overall message is a good one....Characters' faces are wonderfully expressive and subtle details tucked into each painting will entertain watchful readers." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Although the rhymes are sometimes forced and constructions awkward...Cornell's ever-exuberant illustrations fly through the air with the greatest of ease. Dozens of tiny, comical details...enliven the message-heavy book." Karin Snelson, Booklist

Review:

"The heavily detailed pictures have hidden humor that will be much more entertaining to adults than to children, such as the titles of the books scattered around the children's room." School Library Journal
