I have read this book with my PDS classes before and I always ask probing questions throughout the story and afterwards and I‘m always blown away by the wonderful things my students come up with.
Picture book. Published 2018. This is a great read that is very common in many classrooms today. It teaches children the importance of loving yourself while also respecting others and treating others with kindness. Self-esteem is a huge issue for many children and it‘s important to me to teach them how they can love themselves from a young age to carry in with them.
Poetry. This is a beautiful book of rhyming poetry book. I found myself focusing more on the message behind the rhymes and poem. Which I found is that everyone is worth of respect and we should show kindness to others. This book beautifully delivers that massage through simple rhyme and simile.
Published in 2018, this story was a Goodreads choice awards picture book winner. This is a great story about a young girl who discovers that she is enough regardless of her looks and attributes. This story encourages children to show kindness and recognize that everyone is unique in their own ways. I would read this story to my future classroom because it shows students that we are all different but all have so much to offer to the classroom.
This book is about honoring and respecting diversity and celebrating who we are as individuals. It highlights the importance of each part of us and our identities and empowers through the poetically written words. This is a book that inspires confidence and kindness in children.

📚 BANNED BOOK ALERT 📚
Every few years, it seems a school I am affiliated with actively works to suppress diverse voices. 😤 This year, it's my alma mater, Central York School District (CYSD) in York, PA. I attended K-12 there, & the school board recently decided to ban everything on a 4 pg document released by its own diversity committee.
A friend & fellow alumni is gathering banned book donations for the FLL near one of the elem schools. ⬇
One of my very favorites
#JumpIntoJanuary Day 17: Empowering and inspirational picturebooks like this one can prove to be our #Salvation especially during times of divisiveness and chaos.

I Am Enough by Grace Byers and illustrated by Keturah A. Bobo is a beautifully empowering piece of poetry all elementary classrooms should have. It touches on themes such as resilience, love, respect, and inclusivity while using leveled vocabulary and spectacular drawings. This is a perfect book for IR and a truly inspiring read. #UCFLAE3414F19
I am enough by Grace Byers, published in 2018, is a book that everyone should take a moment to read. It is important to teach kids about loving their differences, and this story is a good way of getting that very idea through to them. While as a society we have made great strides in order to better our community, we still need to continue to push through on our standards to make it a more equal, loving word.
I‘m in a 😾 mood, so I‘m finishing the day with some upbeat kid‘s lit.

The 2018 GR Picture Book Winner. I liked the celebration of girl power, although the title doesn‘t quite go along with the text. But I finished it with a smile on my face, the positive messaging that promotes diversity, compassion and self-love is for all ages!
