Being Yourself (Self-Acceptance)

I wasn't kidding when I said I was focused on self-acceptance this week!  If you missed my other posts about self-acceptance you can check them out HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.  Today I am showcasing several books that I use to teach lessons on self-acceptance.  

Just like the colors of a rainbow, each of us is unique!  Kids are encouraged to celebrate their differences.  This is also a great book to teach diversity!  You can purchase it HERE.

Zoe is a green triangle stuck in a world of red circles.  Zoe has a hard time fitting in with the others because she is different.  This is a great book for teaching students to be themselves even if they are different than others.  It is a great reminder that everyone has something unique about them.  You can purchase Zoe The Misfit HERE.
