A little girl asks some animals what they love about themselves. A flamingo loves his legs "because I get a kick out of you." A chipmunk loves his cheeks for blowing kisses. A whale loves his spout because "singing in the rain makes me happy." A badger loves his teeth because, as he cuts down a tree, "I can change the world." An octopus loves his tentacles that make him into a "hugging machine."

And the little girl? She loves herself. And she loves her cat.

Every being is unique, and every being is lovable. That's the sweet message of this picture book written and illustrated by Karen Lechelt. It's bound to start some conversations about what children love about themselves and those around them.
