Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The 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.

    A great read with your 2 year old

    This is a good book to read with your child and talk about differences. The critic misses the point entirely as the differences are noted as flaws! If your child understands that you do not think differences are flaws, then they have a fightning chance when faced with people who think differences are flaws.

    All Chirldren are the same

    I was running around the Chirldren's section of B&N, for my Child Development class when I came across this book. This book offers younger chirldren the ability of sence and shows that all chirldren are special and differnt. My only negitive is a poor story line.
