Bob and Barbara, brother and sister boa constrictors, could not be any more different from each other... on the outside. However, if you look deeper and deeper inside you may find a very different story! Bob loved his food and always looked fitter and leaner than his sister. Barbara Boa was intimidated by this and a little scared to shed her old skin, not knowing what she would find within. Although she felt uncomfortable and just wanted to change the way she looked, until Barbara can accept the differences and allow the changes to happen, she will never know she is more magnificent than she had ever thought possible! This book helps children with their own self-esteem and confidence. This story is told as a metaphor to read aloud to children and enjoy together. The vibrant illustrations and use of language draws children in to be part of the adventure, gently guiding them alongside the characters to get the message on a more personal level for them, to make their own meanings and take control of their own life situation - in their own way.
