Playing and dancing, you're a star! Listen to Danza: Beautiful is what you are! Danza and her friends are silly and sweet. Playing before the mirror, they are reminded of just how special they are. Parents and children alike can relate to this valuable book about self-esteem and self-acceptance. Written in rhythmic and memorable rhyme, this is a fun book to either read aloud or give to early readers. Winner of Parent Tested Parent Approved Seal of Approval and Academics' Choice Smart Book Award.

We received this book to give an honest review.
K didn't like this book as it was a "girl" book. And I guess I need to start remembering that. This is a book that I will read to my daughter instead. 
So this review will be based on what I think rather than what K thinks because he wasn't listening.

This is a great book for young kids. You have three young girls who look in the mirror and see how beautiful they are. They pretend on what it would be like to be a mermaid and ladybug among other things. The author mentions in the blurb about self-esteem and I think that this is perfect because that is what children need more of now a days. Especially early on in life. The pictures are very colorful and draw you in. The story is rhyming and there is answers as to what the girls like about themselves towards the end for you and your little one to play. I liked the message given in this book that you are beautiful inside and out.
