Drew Barrymore resorts to children books when she starts to feel insecure about her post-pregnancy body. In particular, the “Charlie’s Angels” star said she likes to read Seuss’ ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go!’ and realize how great that she is able to have kids.

In an interview with Glamour magazine, the 40-year-old seasoned actress shared that there are days when her post-pregnancy body is making her feel down. She said having two babies really changed her body and sometimes, it is difficult to just be positive and love herself, as many would say. She said she even compared herself to a “kangaroo with a giant pouch” on certain days. On those days, she would mourn how everything in her body feels saggy and weird. However, she tries not to lose sight of what is important and positive in her situation -- having the ability to “make children.” Dr. Seuss books in particular help her remember to be positive when she is feeling depressed. “When I lose sight of that, I exercise, read Dr. Seuss’ ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go!’ and spend time with my kids. Then I start to see things that are bigger than myself,” she explained.

This is not the first time that the mom of two shared how much of a struggle it is to lose pregnancy weight. Last year, she told E News her husband Will Kopelman made it difficult to become slim again after delivering her daughter Frankie. She said Will is such an eater so she cannot resist joining him. Whenever they went out on dates, the actress said they always try out new restaurants or ordering in and watch “Top Chef.”

Fans of the star could expect to know more about her and her own stories of motherhood because she would be releasing a book of autobiographical essays of her life soon. The book is to be published by Dutton and will contain stories of her life starting from the tender age of 14 up to the present. She would relay her adventures and discuss the lessons she learned from her experiences. She would also be talking extensively of her experiences with being a mom of two.
