Editorial Reviews

Erma Bombeck
"Marlo Thomas has gathered together some of the most noted disciples of human dignity preaching today...Gloria Steinem, Letty Cottin Pogrebin, Shel Silverstein, Carl Reiner and Kurt Vonnegut Jr., to name a few. they have filled the book with songs to be played on your piano or guitar, poems to be read aloud or to yourself and stories often illustrated by the crayon crowd...all with the underlying theme...you are free to be yourself." Books of the Century, The New York Times, April, 1974
Kirkus Reviews

Some 35 or so years on, a self-empowerment classic gets a long-overdue makeover featuring minor changes to the written content but nearly all-new art. The poems, lyrics, parables, dialogues and short stories—contributed by the likes of Shel Silverstein, Dan Greenburg, Judith Viorst and Judy Blume—are as fresh as ever, even barely (if at all) revised. They've never looked better either, thanks to new pictures from more than a dozen illustrators from Tony DiTerlizzi and David Catrow to Jerry Pinkney and Peter S's. Two entries in the original have been dropped, two (including a closing comment by Kurt Vonnegut) added, their order lightly massaged and all of the musical arrangements grouped together at the end. The result makes as persuasive an argument as ever against prescriptive sex or life roles: As Thomas writes, " ‘Should' is a small and bossy word. ‘Could' is as big and beautiful as the sky." Packaged with a CD (not heard). (Anthology. 9-11)
