Product Description

From Amazon

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 and Thidwick: The Big-Hearted Moose. (Ages 4 to 8) --Richard Farr

My older son got this book as a gift several years ago, and my youngest son was reading it this morning and wants one of his own. I'm so glad I found it! It's sort of like a baby book the kids can fill out for themselves. Some of the things the kids fill in are "my hair is ________" and I live in a (city, suburb, town, etc.) And it's all in the wonderful prose of Dr. Seuss. Then they can draw pictures on some pages and color already-drawn pictures on others. I've enjoyed looking back at some of the things my now-eleven-year-old said when he was five! I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to give their young children the opportunity to create a memory book for themselves for their growing up years. It's great!

i got my book about me from one of my aunts for my 5th birthday, and she helped me fill it out. i'm now 24 and still have it, and love it! unfortunately, my mom didn't get any for the older 3 of my siblings, who are now in their teens, but i have other younger siblings (we have a whole heard!) and i plan to get it for them, and also buy a few extra copies for when i have children. (if it's still around, i might just get one for every year!) it's the perfect gift for a child between 5-7. and it's nice to look back and see the ways that things, and people, change and grow. every parent should get this book for each of their children. you won't regret it! it's a great keepsake, directly from your child!

I DID receive a Book About Me when I was 6 years old. I have kept it with me through 5 moves across several states, and it still thrills me to look and remember. My older sister helped me with some of the drawing which brings back wonderful memories of our work together. Now I share this "antique' with my son who is 6 himself. He loves reading about Mom like she was years ago. I have waited until he is old enough to be able, not only to do the drawings and other activities, but to appreciate the memories himself. I highly recommend this book to any parent. I also highly recommend holding on to it for the parent your child will become

Great idea! Looks fun but I didn't love all the pages in there, some a bit negative on my opinion, especially for preschoolers. Maybe it's geared more for school aged children? For example, the opening page says "I don't care if you like my name or not. That's my name. It's the only name I've got." My daughter didn't even realize yet that it was possible for people not to like her name! But otherwise it's very good. If I wrote it I would change and update a few areas but it's the best that's out there.

My daughter received this book as a gift for her 5th
Birthday. One year later it is chocked full of information
about her. Each page requires the child to write or draw
things about their house, school, friends, family, clothes,
food, toys, etc. I am surprised by the LOW cost of this
treasure. It is a great activity book for any age child and
once it's completed, it provides on-going entertainment. I
wish I had this book when I was a child! It makes a great
gift for any occasion!

I'm expecting my first child, and my parents sent me the copy of this book that my brother and I filled out 20 years ago. The best part--he wrote in pencil and I wrote over (in red pen, of course) 4 years later.
This book is excellent not only as a keepsake, but also for helping children with counting, exploration, writing stories and self-discovery. In a way that only Dr. Seuss books can, it combines education and fun! Get several--and fill it out each year!

I found a copy of this book that was given and done by my hubby when he was a little boy. It is so cute to look back on. I loved it so much, I had to look it up for my 2 children. I found it and now my 9 year old son has one, my 7 year old daughter has one and I have ordered one for my little baby on the way. It is a family tradition with us. We love it and it is fun to run around the house and to talk with your child to fill out the pages of this memory book!!
