I Am Helpful

A Positive Power Story

Illustrated by Eren Unten
The little girl in I Am Helpful thought that having a baby sister would be fun. But with a different daily routine at home, and her parents constantly distracted by the family’s newest member, the little girl has a lot to adjust to. However, by helping her parents, and taking on special jobs, like singing to the baby, she learns that being a big sister comes with big rewards (though a little spit-up too). Through simply text and joyful illustrations, this final title in the Positive Power series inspires kids tohelp others while giving them the confidence they need to transform from little to BIG readers.

Short on words and long on empowerment, the Positive Power early reader series teaches kids and parents alike the power of positive affirmations and how to incorporate them into their daily lives.
