Do you know what it means to have self-love?  Well, in this story, a young boy named Monty has plenty of it.  He not only loves his mocha melanin, but he loves everything from his ears to the way that he dances.  Monty shows how awesome it is to love and appreciate everything about yourself, but he also points out other people and things that he thinks are magnificent.  Can you guess what or who they are?
