About this deal

Now he’s trading parties and beach days for community service at a seaside conservation center—fair enough. The chemistry is beautiful, and I felt as if I was watching a real family experiencing real situations. Our kids loved books about pigs when they were kids, so when I found a cute one at the school book fairs, I'd get it. Kids enjoy it, yet they giggle about the pig considering herself her best friend and liking her big belly and tiny feet. This little pig loves herself very much and shows that she doesn't need anyone else to make her happy, feel loved, or to have fun.

Packed full of heart, the story opens important conversations around ability, intersectionality, race and identity. It's for very young kids because it's very simple, but wow, what a great message about being happy with ourselves and being resilient when we make mistakes. She always treats herself with respect by keeping herself clean, eating good food, and exercising properly. Dugan cuts their portraits down to the bare essentials, forgoing props, sets, and other frills for the sake of foregrounding their subject’s humanity . Will Jamie and this mystery boy have the courage to meet – and if they do, what will it take to hold on to each other?

He can normally be found as close to the ocean as possible with his dog, Arthur, and a novel from Reese's Book Club. Her brightly colored pencil drawings perfectly capture the happy-go-lucky characters that fill her clever and funny books. Normally wouldn't rant, but this book is aimed at young adults, and they need to know that this type of relationship is not healthy. Secretly hoping that a side character would turn out to be the real love interest by half way through the book. This book was a Christmas present from several years ago that I had been carrying around on holidays because it seemed like it would be a good holiday read but I had never actually got around to reading.

When a kind librarian leads Jamie to a disguised novel in the library that reflects his own confused feelings towards boys, Jamie sees that he’s not the only one who has checked the book out. In the midst of family tensions, an egocentric free spirit who hits rock bottom finds unexpected success as a self-empowerment guru after publishing a self-help book. I Like Me introduces a character children will love to meet – a special friend who will help them feel good about themselves too.

Because they’re stunning, and because I felt that book one was so special I was certain I was going to want to keep this series and read it again and again. It is a good thing to read to young kids so that they know from a young age that it is very important to love yourself, and that you can do so many fun things even when you don't have a friend around. Michaela's first book as both author and illustrator, Colour and Me takes inspiration from conversations with her son.I Like Me Better" reached the top ten in Australia, Austria and Germany, the top-twenty in New Zealand and Slovakia, and the top-forty in Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Hungary, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland.
