The Book

Herman Jiggle wants so badly to fit in with his peers but how far will he go to make that happen?  He feels so inadequate and will try anything to fit in and be liked, accepted and belong. 

His hair looks like a porcupine, his shoes are plain and clunky, his teeth are not wiggly yet and he earns for a hole.  Oh my what is he to do? 

He wants to try glue to smooth out his hair or even try to take out a tooth the hard way.  Poor Herman Jiggle is having an identity crisis.  

Thankfully his loving mom is there to rescue him and convince him to stop trying to change himself and learn to love the unique little human being he was created to be.  

Herman Jiggle, Just Be You! Highlights how to overcome insecurities and anxieties and learn the importance of accepting and loving yourself.  The author has included a special page for parents and educators offering insightful and practical tips on helping kids celebration and LOVE all the things that make then unique.  

The fabulous illustrations enrich the positive message.  This is the fourth title in the popular Socially Skilled Kids book series.  

I love the book ( and the whole series ) and highly recommend it.
