What I Loved:
This book was FANTASTIC! Children can be very hard on themselves and they way this book was written, it gave such an uplifting way for children to love and forgive themselves. This book is not written as on story that has a start and a finish, it is lots of little ideas and reminders about real problems children face and options for them to help overcome the issues.
“If something goes wrong and I say something negative, like, “I’ll never be good enough,” I stop myself and say something more encouraging:
“It’s OK, I just need more practice and patience.”
I can cheer myself on:
“I can do this!”

How I Felt:
Children make mistakes and they get in trouble and sometimes it is hard to help them remember that they ARE great kids. This book says that to them so perfectly. I was in awe at what a good job the author did at writing a story that explains to a child that they are great, even when they mess up.
To Read or Not To Read:
This book is perfect for every child. It works for Pre-K all the way through mid-elementary. I would recommend this book for schools and for home!
Where To Find This Book:
Fantastic You features a variety of children throughout the story, giving any reader a chance to find a child that they feel they relate to. The story is focused on helping children remember that they are special and wonderful. It reminds us that there is only one person they will be spending their ENTIRE life with, YOU, so don’t forget to love yourself.
