Words matter! A positive self-image alphabet for young learners!
Tommy had a rough day at school. He arrives home after being laughed at for playing basketball poorly during physical education class.
A cute story that teaches children the value of self-worth and positive self-talk. The illustrations are colorful and add a pleasant component to the story.
I appreciated the open discussion questions and related activities at the end of the book. Parents and educators will find the extension activities meaningful when speaking with their kiddos about how to react to challenging situations.
I give it 4 Lemon Drops!
Targeted Vocabulary: stupid, embarrassment, terrible, whimpered, qualities, dedicated, eager, trait, daredevil, quest, victorious, zest
Tommy’s ABCs is great for an All About Me unit as well as a lesson on feelings and kindness.
