Note: 
"Be yourself" is the lesson that is delivered in this short, easy-to-read, illustrated story. Brown haired, freckle-faced, chubby Rivka isn't content to be herself. She tried to be like one friend after another - the prettiest one, the most athletic, the smartest, the nicest - but she can't be. When she tearfully confesses to Imma why she has been acting out of character, Imma shows her a way to accept herself as important to Hashem. The obvious moralizing is sweetened by the portrayal of a loving mother-daughter relationship. Although the story is wholesome, the illustrations and format are weak.
