Alice is a huge book lover so I love that I have the opportunity to regularly add to her library.
“GIRL MEETS LOBSTER. GIRLS loves LOBSTER. BUT CAN GIRL SAVE LOBSTER?”
“That’s the question at the center of this sweet and smart picture book about Lucy, her shell-y friend Sherman, and the seafood-loving town they inhabit.
“Lucy loves Sherman from the moment they meet at Flotsam’s Fish Market. Oh sure, he’s an eighteen-pound, eighty-year-old crustacean, but he’s also polka dotted. And blurble-y. And he smells like the ocean! Unfortunately, Nana is not hooked on the idea of a pet lobster.
“Things only get worse when Lucy meets Chef Pierre and discovers that Sherman’s fate is on a plate! She must rescue Sherman., even if it means getting into hot water with all the grownups. So Lucy takes action But will the efforts of one little girl be enough to save Sherman from the bib and butter?”
This book is over the moon cute!! Lucy takes to Sherman like a girl with a new puppy. Except Sherman isn’t a puppy. Sherman’s a lobster. Lucy tries her hardest to convince NaNa to bring Sherman home. NaNa says Sherman is dangerous. Lucy replies “But I love him!” “Sherman’s too big” Lucy is willing to keep him in the bathtub. Even though Lucy reminds NaNa that Sherman won’t bark and won’t shed, she stays firm in her NO!
Then Lucy tries to sneak Sherman out. Funny illustrations from Meg Walters add to this cute story.
While Lucy is sad that she can’t bring Sherman home she finds out that lobster is the special of the day at Pierre’s Fancy Dining. She tries everything from pleading with the chef to fighting with the butcher at Flotsam’s Fish Market. Nothing works until the local news paper covers the picketing locals on Sherman’s behalf. After all Sherman is a very famous eight-pound, eighty-year-old lobster.
Lucy Loves Sherman is a fun read and a powerful story of friendship.

Do you second-guess the decisions you make?
Is self-confidence an issue that you deal with on a daily basis?
Most people deal with self-confidence and esteem issues from one time to another—the process of evaluating yourself and your actions is a very healthy one. However, when the results of your self-appraisal begin to get in the way of leading a fulfilling, happy life, therapy might be the best way to help.
Psychologists note that individuals with self-confidence issues regularly do some of the following thing:
If this sounds like you, it might be time to treat your confidence issues and take positive, assertive control of your life. You could start with a free consultation or browse through a collection of hypnosis download materials to begin.
While there is more than one way to treat low self-confidence, hypnotherapy presents one of the more effective methods out there. Psychiatric therapy and life coaching can’t address the deeper nature of self-confidence.
This is because confidence is a deep-rooted subconscious trait. Unlike a disease with symptoms a doctor can treat, low self confidence manifests directly in the decisions a person makes—you can’t wrap a Band-Aid around it.
Hypnotherapy directly addresses an individual’s subconscious capabilities, developing the foundation for a healthy decision-making process.
As mentioned in Psychology Today, confidence is built by a successful track record of accomplishment—low self-confidence is often the result of high-profile failures that discourage people from attempting difficult tasks. Yet it is only by attempting and completing challenges that people develop confidence.
When low self-confidence prevents you from even attempting new challenges, hypnotherapy can be the most effective way to change the way you approach them.
Although it might seem like self-confidence and self-esteem are the the same thing, they’re separate, but closely related attributes. Self-confidence simply refers to the way you judge the quality of your actions. Developing self-confidence leads to developing greater self-esteem, which is an overall evaluation of how well you meet your own expectations.
After using hypnotherapy to increase your self-confidence, you will have the tools necessary to approach life’s challenges and gain a sense of accomplishment from completing them. This will produce greater self-esteem, which has many psychological benefits:
