PICTURES OF SELF-ESTEEM
I LOVE Me is a colourful celebration of individuality and good selfesteem among children.
Sally Morgan and Ambelin Kwaymullina’s new book uses vibrant colours and bold illustrations to tell young readers that it is OK to love every part of themselves, from their eyes, to their body shape and even the way their hair grows.
Illustrator Kwaymullina said the book was a bright and happy way to encourage children to celebrate themselves. “It’s for all children, but perhaps especially those who struggle to know how wonderful they are,” she said.
“There are very few picture books with non-white characters, and it’s so important for all children both to be able to find themselves in story and to encounter the lives of other children in story.
“So I would like this book to be a place where worlds can meet.”
I Love Me is available from www.fremantlepress.com.au.
