I really like this book because it shows children that being different is still great. It shows them that they should appreciate how they are and that they are incredible just the way they are. ( )

Everyone is special in their own way. This book is about a girl that celebrates her unique ways! She knows that no one has the same nose as her, giggle as her, or the same dreams as her. The moral of this story is the idea of individuality and that everyone is incredible in their own eyes. ( )

Told through the perspective of one young girl, Incredible Me! celebrates what it means to be a unique individual and to have special qualities that nobody else has. This book would be appropriate to read to children in preschool, kindergarten, or elementary school to teach them that everybody is different and special in their own ways. The simple, rhyming text throughout the story makes it an engaging, fast-paced read that is able to capture and hold the attention of young listeners. The rhyming text also enhances the predictability of the story and makes it one that young children will be able to remember and recite after hearing it multiple times. Colorful, whimsical illustrations abound throughout the text and combine collage-type pieces (i.e. pieces of colored paper and fabric) with drawings that look like children could have drawn them. Some of the words throughout the book are bolded, such as “nobody,” “me,” and “only,” so as to emphasize how special the narrator’s qualities are. This book deserves to be added to all library collections because of its message about appreciating differences and thinking about what makes oneself “incredible.” ( )

A book about loving yourself just the way you are! There is only one you, no one else is quite like you! A great confidence & self-esteem booster for children! I love the rhyming in the book as well as the illustrations; great book! :) ( )
