Children's LiteratureThe premise of this book is a risky one and does not work. What I like about me is my unruly hair, or my great big feet, or my glasses, or the braces on my teeth. To help the reader adjust to these things that youngsters of the age likely to read this book probably have not even noticed about themselves yet is asking for trouble. The book is large, ten inch by ten inch, and the art is stylistically primitive, featuring large round faces with large red glasses or sparkling silver-banded teeth where appropriate. On the last page there is a large, wrinkly five and one-half-inch round mirror topped by the question, "What is it you like best about you!" Peering into it will allow the young reader to see whether or not he has the dreaded big ears, wild hair, freckles, banded teeth, eyeglasses, or any other flaw he will now have to worry about, and he will pick out these flaws in his friends. 2005, Reader's Digest, Ages 4 to 7.
