What I Tell Myself FIRST

What I Tell Myself First: Children’s Real-World Affirmations of Self Esteem by Michael A. Brown features a complete list of both positive and realistic comments for children related to everyday situations. From beginning to end, Brown gives young readers brief but focused affirmations they can use when faced with most any feeling. Included in Brown’s book are blanks for children to personalize comments.

Michael A. Brown’s children’s book provides readers with an excellent source of support as questions and self-doubt may arise throughout early childhood and into early adolescence. The author has thoroughly analyzed all possible situations and handed readers fantastic phrases to recite in preparation to meet their challenges head-on. From friendships to the stresses of school, from work ethics to bullying, Brown includes phrases that are easy to commit to memory and inspiring in every way.

As a third grade teacher, I can see Brown’s book as a fabulous addition to a guidance curriculum. In addition, What I Tell Myself First would serve as a great conversation starter during individual counseling sessions with students who find it difficult to express themselves. Zoe Ranucci’s illustrations are wonderful representations for a wide variety of readers. I am eager to see more books of this caliber from Michael A. Brown–elementary and middle school educators are in dire need of books like this one.
