The world can make us feel like we need to change ourselves to be good enough. Yak’s story introduces children to the concept of self-acceptance, modeling what it means to offer and receive unconditional love. Children are reminded that they don’t need to do or be anything to be loved. They are enough exactly as they are.
Reflect & Connect questions at the end of the story support caregivers with interactive questions that help deepen children’s understanding of self-acceptance and provide a foundation for meaningful discussion.
