Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be Yourself! My son and I love this book. It truly is my favourite book to read aloud to him. The rhyming flows nicely and the story is adorable. Edward is tired of being himself, he tries a few days as someone else and realizes he was fine just as he was.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Such a cute story My youngest daughter was given this book when she was just a baby and it became a true favourite, and not just of hers! It's a lovely, funny story. We can still read it all these years later and enjoy it just as much. We in turn have given this book to family and friends who are having little ones of their own.
