WHAT I LIKE ABOUT ME! A Book of Celebrating Differences

Author: Allia Zobel-Nolan

Illustrator: Miki Sakamoto

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: Reader's Digest Children's Books,

Material: board book

Summary: Each of us has lots of special things we like about ourselves: from our head to our toes and in between. We're even invited to name our own favorite thing! This is a picture/pop-up book that describes some of the things that make us unique.

Type of Reading: bedtime story, playtime reading, read aloud book, interactive reading

Recommended Age: read together: 4 to 12; read yourself: 7 to 10

Interest Level: 4 to 10

Age of Child: started reading with 4-year-old child

Young Reader Reaction: "Can we read this again?" was the first question, then our preschooler proceeded to name the things she likes about herself and her parents.

Adult Reader Reaction: This is a fun read. The tabs and textures make it enjoyable for sharing with a preschooler (though I think a 12-year-old might find it a little too simplistic).

Pros: The story is interactive, allowing readers not only to touch/feel/see the traits, but also inviting them to pick their own.

Cons: None, really.

Borrow or Buy: Buy. This is one that your child will like "reading" on their own. It doesn't hurt to have a book or two that reminds them about liking themselves … and others.


Educational Themes: There is a teacher's edition of this book available. The book is a great way to open discussions about how what makes us different also makes us the same.

Literary Categories: fiction - picture book, self worth, interactive learning, family, multicultural
