Positive affirmations improve children's self-esteem and motivate them to be honest with themselves. Sometimes children need to feel confident when interacting with other children or to encourage themselves to do new things. That is why it is important to teach them about self-confidence. What Matters Most deals with this topic. The story is about a little girl who had a bad day at school. She was teased about wearing glasses. She tells her mom about the problem, and then the mom explains that we are all different and that the glasses don't define her. It's who you are and how you express yourself that matters. With illustrations by Sasha Staneva, Kylie Victoria has created an inspiring story. The mom's words will help children become more self-confident. Young readers will learn to appreciate their qualities and feel more secure.
What Matters Most is an enjoyable read that will teach children how to develop a positive attitude. One aspect that I liked is that the story is not limited to just creating positive self-esteem. It also shows how small actions and kind gestures to others generate a better environment. Kylie Victoria's characters are likable and the interaction between mother and daughter is charming. I liked Sasha Staneva's images because they convey warmth and affection. I am sure that this book will help many children to socialize and feel better about themselves. It will also teach them to find the courage to try new activities. Another feature I liked is that it includes an explanation of what an affirmation is and gives some examples so that children can be motivated.
