“I Like Myself!” and “The Big, Big Sea”

I first heard about “I Like Myself!” when an actress called Liz Carr read it on the CBeebies Bedtime Stories bit just before 7pm (when CBeebies and CBBC stop broadcasting).

The blurb for it describes it as an “ode to self esteem” which I think is pretty spot on.  My children sometimes recite it and it makes me happy to hear them say “I like myself, I’m glad I’m me.  There’s no one else I’d rather be”.

Anyway, it is a very good book and super for just before bedtime.

The Big, Big Sea” is a calm, gentle book that is relaxing to read just before bedtime.  For some reason, I find it a little bit moving (even though it’s just about a walk to and from the beach after dark).

This is a calm, gentle book
