This book and Fixed by Camel are the first two I remember reading as a kid. The entire Sweet Pickles series is a masterpiece in my opinion. Maybe I just love the whole alphabet thing. I know I could probably go online and purchase them all, but one of my life goals is to find every one of them at DI. Or the equivalent if I'm not living in Utah. Or Idaho. Currently I need A, H, J, L, M, P, Q, T, V, and Y. Just so you know.
I read a ton of these. Hell if I remember which ones. I had the Avon bath toys or whatever too.

This was my favorite book as a child. My poor mom probably read it a million times to me. When I found the set at a yard sale I was so stoked that I could share it with my daughter, too!

My favorite Sweet Pickles! (Which is saying a lot because I adore these books.) My siblings and I still quote it, and it has a great message about accepting yourself as you are.

I definitely remember reading some of the Sweet Pickle series although it was never the whole stories. My generation seemed to have so many morality tells that always gave you a sweet book with a lesson to learn while I wish sometimes there were more books like that for today's generation.

Me Too Iguana is just your Plain Jane who thinks you have to cover yourself in peacock feathers for anyone to notice you. And yet her friends know the problem almost right away. It is a treasure to be passed

This ranks as my favorite book to read aloud to my son (when he was little) I love this book because it is all about being yourself and be happy with who you are in your own skin. I made of voices for all 26 Sweet Pickles characters, but Iguana was my favorite ...more

I remember this being my favorite of the Sweet Pickles books. All of them involved stories of solving some central character flaw in the protagonist, and the treatment they gave Iguana in this one was pretty clever.

This is a book from my childhood that my mother was getting rid of; so I grabbed it and absorbed it into my own library. :D

Iguana wants so desperately to be liked that she copies others.

This was a very cute story. It teaches children and encourages them to be themselves and be proud of who they are. It is a great read and the lessons learned are excellent.
