I Want Your Moo: A Story for Children about Self-Esteem
By Marcella Bakur Weiner and Jill Neimark
Illustrated by Jairo Barragàn
This children’s story features Toodles, the turkey, who dislikes the sound of her “gobble gobble.” She struggles for self-acceptance, and eventually sees victory over her self-doubt when the very voice she dislikes saves the day. This story reinforces that all of our attributes are important, promoting a healthy sense of self-worth and acceptance with each reading. Recommended for children ages 4 -8.
