    One thought on “Wow! It Sure is Good to Be You!”

    1. This is really lovely book. While reading this book, I imagine that mom reads this book to her young children and says how much she loves them. "Loves you more than birds love trees more than brothers love to tease, loves you even more than dogs have fleas,and that's a lot, too!" How we can explain our love better than this.

    2. THIS BOOK ROCKS! First of all, the fact that it's an African American girl is sweet, secondly there are affirmations all over the illustrations like, "You Can Do It", "Girls Rock", etc.But most importantly it just makes you smile. Great message to girls and says things like, "Somewhere, somebody loves you more than cows love to moo, more than ballerinas love tutus and would ride a smelly yak across Kathmandu just to be with you, and that's really far toowow it's great to be you!"I thought it was [...]

    3. I gave this book an extra star because of the message it's sending to little girls (and little ones in general). Aside from the message of loving yourself and being happy with who you are, I thought the book was awful. The language seemed a little too forced to me. "Somebody, somewhere,remembers your silly faces, and sad one, too, wishes you all the luck in the universe,Is always proud of you!"That just doesn't read well to me.

    4. This was a very short and sweet book. It makes me think of loved ones in my life. Like your parents, and grandparents. And how they're always rooting for me, no matter what you do in life, they love you no matter what. This would be a good read for students ages K-4th grade.

    5. Too cutsie's not our goal to edu-cute them, so I would not buy this book. The book is full of friviolous talk, no real information, or learning is conveyed. This book might be on the same level educationally as a poorly written cartoon as far as I'm concerned.

    6. This book is very rah-rah, but the cadence seems off too. Its best use would be as an extended 'thinking of you' card from an aunt or godmother to a loved little girl, but other than that it doesn't have any real substance. Use only as directed; two stars.

    7. Reminding readers that they are loved even if those who love them are far away while tying in visual messages of girl power, this book is a strange combination of themes and messages

    8. This seems to refer more to the love of a parent (particularly one who is away) than just basic loving others. Not a huge fan of the illustrations, but I'm sure there is a place for it.
