Book Review - Sometimes, All I Need Is Me

Sometimes, All I Need Is Me

About the Book
In Sometimes All I Need Is Me you get gentle themes of resiliency, mindfulness, and self-care are brought home in this sweet and soulful picture book with charmingly graphic illustrations and a poetic text.

I love listening to music, especially samba!

It feels like my heart follows the beat.

Meet a young girl who loves her cozy home. It smells like cinnamon tea and feels like warm pajamas. But even when she’s away from home, and everything is different, she finds a way to become her own home, where she feels calm. At night, when it’s too dark and her feet are cold, her room can be a little scary. But she creates her own light when she closes her eyes and thinks of the sun. With friendliness and charm, Juliana Perdomo, in her debut as author-illustrator, shows young readers how to find comfort and confidence within. Her heartwarming picture book reassures children that sometimes, everything we need—courage, joy, peace, and love—is already inside us.

My Take on the Book
I loved this story and how well it allows a parent and child to connect and learn about things that are so important. The book introduces you to concepts of mindfulness and more as you get to talk through these issues and opens up lines of communication with young readers about how they can care for themselves and advocate for themselves too!
