Product Description
This is one of my absolute FAVORITE stories for young children! It's about a little girl who likes herself no matter what anyone else may think of her. This story is a great conversation starter to invite students to share what they like about themselves and to introduce how we are all different in many ways. I've included some great activities for the beginning of the year as students get to know each other. Feel free to use the extra images at the end of the lesson plan as you desire.
