I am the only ME I AM
who qualifies as me;
no ME I AM has been before,
and none will ever be.

Three very different children reveal their individual personalities in a series of visual mini-adventures. Readers meet a mischievous tomboy who would rather roller-skate than wear a frilly dress, an inquisitive nature-loving boy, and an artistic ballerina who puts her own spin on Swan Lake. Finally, in a wild and funny climax, the three collide - only to discover a world full of unique and special "ME's."

With exuberant art and gleeful verse, this empowering celebration of individuality and diversity is just right for any young child discovering his or her own self - and the fun of being ME!

Editorial Reviews

"Spinning off a lovable, previously published poem by Prelutsky, Davenier illustrates the same several verses three times, with each iteration gaining power and meaning through depictions of three distinct children." -Starred, Booklist"A celebration of creativity." -Publishers Weekly"Cheerful." -Kirkus Reviews"The poem comes alive with a freshness that honors children on the road to self-discovery and exuberantly celebrates the differences that make them who they are." -School Library Journal
