From the Publisher:
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!
Told in alternating points of view by a boy and a girl, this is a celebration of liking oneself no matter what--even when you make a mistake, are chosen last for a team, or give a wrong answer in class. Color illustrations accompany the rhyming text.
"Though the message is both catchy and effective in its delivery, it's Cornell's humorous, detailed, ink-and-watercolor illustrations that give this volume true pizzazz. She hits just the right not of fear-tinged bravura with the characters' vividly imagined antics." 09/30/2002
