Both of their mothers were quite pleased with the book! One mentioned that her daughter was dealing with a "bully" issue. The engaging artwork and hand lettering by Betty L. Shondeck illustrate passive "mouse" and aggressive "monster" behaviors so that children can identify these characteristics in themselves and others and focus on finding a balance between them. Out of print for ten years, The Mouse, the Monster and Me has been updated with the help of Pat's longtime friend, Louise Hart, Ed.

Pat Palmer, Sue Rama, Louise Hart. Liking Myself is an encouraging book and a valuable resource for building selfesteem and emotional stability in children 5 to 11 years of age. By writing or drawing responses to a variety of self-esteem activities, children develop social and emotional skills. The book teaches children to listen to and talk about feelings. They learn to manage the full range of their emotions  including anxiety, anger, depression, and being overwhelmed  without hurting others.

I have used these books for all of my 23 years of elementary counseling classroom lessons, and my copies are tattered beyond repair. They are among the best resources to teach assertiveness and personal skills-students retain the information and refer to them years later. I am absolutely thrilled that Liking Myself and The Mouse, the Monster and Me, are updated and back in print! "

This is my own little business offering all nail treatments as well as waxing, tanning and eye treatments  . e moon!! she took so much time making sure they were perfect, which they are! so much so we’ve booked our next 3 appointments with her, she listened to exactly what I wanted, I can’t recommend her enough!

An introduction to concepts of feelings, self-esteem, and assertiveness.
  • I am a counselor who works with children. Liking Myself is the book I find myself using most often with elementary school children. Liking Myself helps children find out the good things about themselves, learn how to deal with feelings, and learn how to have better relationships with others. There are little practice activities in the book that help kids apply what they are reading.

    This is an excellent book that I think all children can benefit from, but especially kids with low self-esteem. I think this book will be a staple in my work with children for years to come.

  • This is a great little book to read with kids. I'm a child psychologist and have found this book very helpful when I have worked with 5-9 year-olds. I am looking forward to reading it with my own daughter, who just turned 4.

  • This book could change a culture, should be on a madatory 'REad LIST" for every parent and child. SImple foundational information that every person on the earth should be taught.

  • Wonderful for all children.

  • Over thirty years ago, Pat Palmer and Louise Hart met at their first graduate school class in Greeley, Colorado. Pat was the founder and director of the Assertiveness Training Institute of Denver, and when she spoke she surprised some of the men and the "nice girls" in the class, including Louise, to whom she offered a scholarship to her assertiveness class. Pat's dissertation on teaching assertiveness from an early age was published as two children's books: Liking Myself and The Mouse, the Monster and Me. They became international bestsellers in six languages, selling over a half a million copies around the globe, but they went out of print in 2000.

    Now, ten years later, these two longtime favorites, which teach social-emotional skills, are being revised and released with help from Pat's longtime friend Louise Hart, Ed.D. Liking Myself, written for children between the ages of five and ten and charmingly illustrated by Betty L. Shondeck, discusses the importance of liking yourself, having feelings, talking about your feelings, allowing yourself to be different, understanding body talk, and letting go. It offers advice on how to handle yourself when you feel depressed, upset, or overwhelmed. There are several ideas, including games, to improve assertiveness and build emotional literacy. The official republication date is January 2010.

  • Liking Myself by Pat Palmer, illustrated by Betty L. Shandeck is an excellent book for ages 8 and up with clever little illustrations and hand lettering that help the child identify with the pages. The important message in the book is for every person of every age and would prevent a lot of psychological disorders and depression in teen and adult life: It is OK and healthy to LIKE YOURSELF. There are many little habits and suggestions of self-talk that are wisely given in ways children will enjoy, and exercises to do as a family group to reinforce each person's self image and self approval. I highly recommend this book as a MUST, not only for your child but also for yourself as a person and parent and for every teen.

  • As growth becomes individually apparent, the learner finds that the idea of a complex life can be simple from almost infancy.

    Pat Palmer, in an originally crafted mid-seventies, 80-page, funbook, full of ideas, exercises, warm thoughts, and love, makes ostensible the solution to man's many problems. To like [love] oneself is an elixir.

    Divided into six parts, Palmer begins with "Liking Myself." The reader, whether young or old, discovers the priceless value of being himself and enjoying himself by himself - liking myself. In parts two and three, "Feelings" and "Feelings Talk," the author expresses a more specific reality than Rennaissance man Rene Descarte's, "I think; therefore, I am." Rather, LIKING MYSELF illumines, "I feel; therefore, I am!" Feeling allows the reader through inner language to explore the beautiful realism of what exists.

    "Allowing," part four, manifests the ideas of individuality, uniqueness, indecision, confusion, pretense, and human error, all in childlike manner, but with the sameness as these apply to every life and to every being.

    "Body Talk," in part five, captures the body as a divine vessel that speaks to us -- and we should listen.

    Finally, observer consciousness concludes the book with the last chapter entitled, "Letting Go." This idea of detachment from problems, dramas, uncontrollable situations, negative emotions and thoughts, places the reader in his most important posture -- self, and liking that self.

    In sum, the crucible -- this trial we often refer to as life, is actually quite radiant when we begin to like [love] ourselves. Palmer epitomizes life's essence in a children's book -- a must for adults.

  • I have been using Liking Myself as a referal for parents for 20 years. It is one of the best self-help/parenting books that is designed for children I have seen in all my years as a parent and practitioner of conflict resolution.

    Liking Myself is the beginning of dignity and I am so pleased that this book is being republished to help more and more parents and teachers support more and more childrens finding, and knowing how to restore their dignity.
