Booklist Review: "Ages 3-5. Little ones in need of positive reinforcement will find it here. An exuberant pig proclaims, ``I like me!'' She likes the way she looks (close-ups show her round tummy, curly tail, and tiny feet) and activities such as reading, drawing, and riding her bike-fast. When she feels badly or makes a mistake, she picks herself up and tries again. Although the ``be your own best friend'' philosophy wears a bit, there is certainly room on library shelves for a book that extols the virtues of being yourself. The stridency of the message is tempered by the jazzy yet childlike drawings done with bright color pencils. Carlson's clever use of decorative patterning adds dimension to the design; kids will have a good laugh at Ms. Pig taking a bath or wearing a beret while showing off her drawings at her easel. Just the thing for a child who's feeling insecure. IC. Pigs-Fiction / Self-reliance-Fiction [OCLC] 87-32616"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The ebullient pig-heroine is a happy adherent to the adage ``Love Thyself.'' ``I like me!'' she exclaims from the cover and goes on to say, ``I like my curly tail, my round tummy and my tiny little feet.'' The fresh-faced piggy elaborates: she always treats herself with respect by keeping herself clean, eating good food and exercising properly. She takes care of other important needs, too, drawing lovely pictures, reading good books and cheering herself up when she's feeling down. Never too hard on herself for failures, she points out that when she makes mistakes, she tries again. The formation of a healthy self-image, the cornerstone of a happy and successful life, is what this book is all about. Bright, colorful pictures complement the bouncy, upbeat text; Carlson skillfully imparts a positive message without denying that life holds embarrassingeven sadmoments. The book and its heroine are loaded with appeal. Ages 2-6. (August) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
