San Jose, CA
The new children's book by Mary Russo, PhD; skillfully shares practical advice for the young reader with the use of a fanciful character named Polka Dot Sue.
This story encourages a sense of self-acceptance and pride despite obstacles, thus showing a sense of self-empowerment can arise all from believing in one-self .
"Feeling sad and ashamed leads to feelings of depression and anxiety, thus fostering feelings of poor self-esteem and making one prone to think in a distorted way", Russo writes. "Poor self-esteem clouds ones' identity and may lead to feeling ashamed and sad."
Accepting ourselves for who we are despite what others may think or say, gives one a greater sense of self and better equipped to tackle life's events.
Polka Dot Sue is the story of a young girl with polka dot hair, who takes great pride in who she is and conveys this pride with her enjoyment of clothing herself handsomely each day. The story gives a child the sense of self acceptance and pride to show others that a deep sense of self-empowerment come from believing in one self despite obstacles.
With the color-emotion awareness, another sense of expressiveness, it encourages the young reader to understand more about feelings with color and self-expression.
Also the days of the week provide a framework, which gives an opportunity for more fundamental growth.
With illustrations by Yelena Kasianova., the story is brought to life and the positive messages are conveyed in this colorfully, illustrated , deeply enchanting new children's book.

Posted December 22, 2012 by Joey Melotti , Henderson, NVWe have three children and my oldest is 6. She especially likes the colors, the days of the week, the polka dot hair, and her dog Stu. This book shows you can be different and independent, and instills confidence. A fun and quick read, we keep enjoying it for our bedtime routine.
