Do you have something you don’t like about yourself? Do your kids? Or your grandkids?
I bet we all do. I know I do. I have never really liked my thighs. They are rather large even back when I was an active competitive swimmer in high school.
In fact, other kids used to refer to me as ‘Wanda legs’ said in a deep tone like an elephant walking through the forest. Funny thing though, I didn’t realize they were making fun of my big legs. I thought they were paying me a compliment. I love denial. It’s my favorite coping mechanism. But, I know others aren’t that lucky. Words can really hurt us and stay with us forever.
Just like Tad in A Turtle’s Magical Adventure, he doesn’t like his shell because he blames it for making him too slow. He is also picked on at school for being so slow and coming to school late. He wants to be fast like Steve the snake who, unfortunately, gives him some bad advice to go see the wizard to have it removed.
If you or someone you know and love is struggling with something they don’t like about themselves, please share this book with them. It will entertain and encourage them to love everything about themselves.
