High on energy and imagination, this ode to self-esteem encourages kids to appreciate everything about themselves - inside and out. Messy hair? Beaver breath? So what! Here's a little girl who knows what really matters.At once silly and serious, Karen Beaumont's joyous rhyming text and David Catrow's wild illustrations unite in a book that is sassy, soulful - and straight from the heart.
Karen Beaumont is the author of many children's books, including I Ain't Gonna Paint No More!, illustrated by David Catrow. She lives in Capitola, California.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have a kid you need this book This book is amazing. The illustration is wonderfully done. It's a fun way to get the conversation about loving yourself no matter what going. I love that you can't really tell what gender the main character is, at least in our house they are gender neutral so it fits both my son and daughter. If you want to line your book with empowering stories and messages of self confidence I highly recommend you add this one to your shelf. Oh and it rhymes can you get any better that that?

Editorial Reviews

PreSchool-Grade 2-This curly haired African-American moppet really likes herself. No matter what she does, wherever she goes, or what others think of her, she likes herself because, as she says, "I'm ME!" Catrow's watercolor, ink, and pencil illustrations bring even more humor to the funny verse. The brightly colored art and rhymes are reminiscent of Dr. Seuss's work with their quirky absurdity, especially the full spread of the child and her highly unusual bicycle. Even with ".stinky toes/or horns protruding from my nose," her dog loves her unconditionally. She is so full of joy that readers will love her, too-even when she has purple polka-dotted lips. Titles such as Jamie Lee Curtis's I'm Gonna Like Me (2002) and Kathi Appelt's Incredible Me! (2003, both HarperCollins) have a similar theme, but the main characters are Caucasian. A great addition.-Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR
