One of the titles for the younger crowd in the Beginners Books series, My Book About Me has an unusual interactive twist–you make it up as you go along. On each page there’s something new to complete, from “I weigh ___ pounds” to “My teeth. I counted them. I have ___ up top. I have ___ downstairs.” It’s a simple idea, but with a surprising amount of educational value–getting children to name their home country, to recognize and draw in the color of their own eyes, learn their telephone number and address, to name favorite clothes, foods, and colors, and more. Finally, there’s a two-page spread where each owner of the book can write his or her own story. Illustrator Roy McKie’s style is halfway between the P.D. Eastman of Are You My Mother and the mainstream Seuss of Cat in the Hat. –Richard Farr By: Dr. Seuss and Roy McKie
Age recommendation: 3-7 years
