Strengthen and support a child's self-esteem with these warm, simple words and gentle, appealing illustrations. Little ones learn that they are special "not because of the things I do, not because of what I look like, not because of what I have...just because I am." They learn to respect their bodies and acknowledge their needs. They name and own important feelings, discover that everyone makes mistakes, and hear that it's okay to say yes and no. As adult leaders--parents, teachers, day-care providers, counselors, family members, and friends--it's our responsibility to give children these affirming, empowering messages. Just Because I Am is a wonderful way to begin.
