The Book

This is an important book that introduces kids to the concept of having self-confidence.  The text is simple and the illustrations are outstanding. They greatly enrich the narrative. 

The author cites many methods to boost and conquer that feeling of apprehension and nervousness about trying new things.  Kids can easily relate to the author's suggestions and they will discover that with practice they can feel more confident enabling them to engage more in the world around them. 

"Mommy What is Confidence?"  will spark conversations causing a child's self-esteem to grow and to blossom. It includes a Confident Cup that kids can strive for as they progress and begin to belief in themselves and in their abilities
