What Do You Love About You
What Do You Love About You by Karen Lechelt (2016)
This is a sweet and simple story that will fit right into a storytime about love, providing a welcome opportunity to build self-esteem by thinking and talking about the things we love about ourselves. The young girl with a dark pageboy and medium brown skin asks various animals (shown as toys at the end) what they love about themselves, and they answer with things that make them happy. Many celebrate their relationship with the girl.
Themes/topics: love, self-esteem, stuffed animals
