I read this when I was just a young girl, I <3 it.

When I was little I was picked on for my name, and when I found this book it made me feel good about my name. I highly recommend this book to parents who kids are being bullied, it'll teach them how to be happy with themselves and they'll know: They're absolutely positively perfect!
