Exactly what I’ve been trying to teach my 10 year old who is hard on himself. I like how the character expresses some of the same cognitive distortions my son expresses. “I can’t do anything right.” I think he will be able to relate and grow from reading with me.
I love all of Gabi Garcia's books. I use them in guidance lessons as an elementary school counselor. This newest one is about teaching how to be a good friend. The book gives a good example of being a good friend to yourself first. If you a good friend to yourself you can be a good friend to others. She also gives tips on how to be comforting and kind to yourself and others.
This book is truly for all ages. I am in my forties and just learning to befriend myself. For a young child to learn how to comfort themselves is a wonderful gift. Children are very bright and when they are beating themselves up, it is a nice offering to say, “What would you tell your friend if they were having this same struggle?” Thank you, Gabi!
As an adult, the message in this book is good for me to hear just as much as my children. As a parent educator and social skills expert, this is my new go to book to remind children to give themselves grace as they face uncertainties in life.
Our favorite author, Gabi Garcia, brings heart and compassion to self care, a most precious tool for children of all ages! Written and illustrated in an unconditional and inviting narrative, we could not wait to turn the page. Doen to earth, transformative guidance, a must read, and discuss, in families, schools, and communities. The path of our future, now.
