A Book About Me!
This is a very cute and clever fill-in-the-blank and fill-in-the-picture book for children.
From the publisher: "Inventive, hilarious and joyously colorful, this fill-in journal was designed to help kids capture nearly everything that’s uniquely rad about them. With design-savvy, yet completely kid-friendly illustrations, they’re asked to draw or write about a bunch of interesting things — like what their hair looks like, what their band name would be, what they’d bring to outer space, and how they feel about lightning, lizards and pickles. There may or may not be a place for super-secret stuff inside the book jacket. Whether kids complete their entire compendium on a rainy day, or finish it over a year, it’ll become a treasure to look back on and smile."
I love the huge scope of questions that they ask from funny jokes, to favorite clothes, to spy names, to what I wish was in my refrigerator.
They encourage dreaming with question such as, "If I had a shop, it would be called ___ , and we would sell____".
They encourage physical activity with challenges such as: "number of jumping jacks i can do before i get tired."
There is even a little math on the "I am __ inches tall" page!
Great book for kids who enjoy (or need to practice!) reflection questions and writing. I would recommend this for 2nd-6th grade boys and girls.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
