Fair. A book with obvious wear. May have some damage to the cover but integrity still intact. The binding may be slightly damaged but integrity is still intact. Possible writing in margins, possible underlining and highlighting of text, but no missing pages or anything that would compromise the legibility or understanding of the text.
I am a storyteller and this book is a true "character building" tool! I have read this to audiences ranging from 3-14 years old! The rhymes are fun and the pictures are zany but you can still relate to the character. You can use it to entertain or teach....I have done both! It is a "Must Have"!!
Publishers Weekly, 2004-05-31 I Like Myself! by Karen Beaumont (Baby Danced the Polka), illus. by David Catrow, is a breezy affirmation of self. The rhymes can be goofy ("I'd still like me with fleas or warts,/ or with a silly snout that snorts"), but even when they are straightforward, as they are in the beginning ("I like me on the inside too/, for all I think and say and do"). Catrow's (Plantzilla) typically zany illustrations up-end them (for the "I like me on the inside" verse, he shows the narrator and her horrified dog in X-ray mode). (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
