“I am lovable! I am lovable! I am lovable!” are the magic words that open the gates to the Kingdom of Self-Esteem. Blending a lively narrative, charming illustrations, and valuable lessons in living, this book conducts young readers to the enchanted realm where twenty-four remarkable animals, each embodying a facet of self-esteem, await them. Each lovable animal gives children a way of identifying with and creating the qualities that make up a positive self-image. Thought by many educators and social scientists to be the key to preventing crime and alcohol and drug abuse, high self-esteem is a gift that endures for a lifetime.
