Gobble-gobble. Gobble-gobble.

What a horrible noise!

I can’t stand the sound of my voice!

Toodles doesn’t like herself. Her legs are skinny, her feathers are brown, and her head has no hair. Most of all, she hates her Gobble-gobble. All that changes when Toodles saves the day with her super-confident, super-empowering, super-turkey Gobble-gobble!

With lively rhymes and funny illustrations, this book will have kids laughing out loud while they learn to accept their own Gobble-gobbles.

An extensive Note to Parents relays additional information and strategies for helping kids overcome a lack of confidence and self-esteem.
