Self-Esteem Week: Valuing Ourselves
by Kathryn Otoshi
KO Kids Books, 2010
Zero feels empty. She doesn't think she counts, like the other numbers. Seven encourages her to remember, "It's what's inside that counts most," and "Be open. You'll find a way."
Zero realizes that she can bring value to the other numbers when she counts WITH them by leading the way before 1, 2, and 3, but also in combination with them to make all kinds of bigger numbers than they could make on their own.
When Zero is open to her true value, she feels whole, rather than empty.
Come back tomorrow for more picture books that build self-esteem!
