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! :) ( )

The most impressive characteristic of Incredible Me! was some of the grammatical structure I noticed while I read. Kathi Appelt uses contractions, metaphors, and popular sayings. All the illustration are larger than life. In one of the illustrations, the little girl in tip toeing on top of bridge at night. Also, I found it neat that the girl's teddy bear and doll (that looked just like her) followed her during many of these elaborate illustrations. The book is the little girls talking about all the things about herself that are unique and that nobody else has. I believe this would be a phenomenal book to read out loud to children to teach them about being unique, confident, and to appreciate others differences as well. To show that all are incredible. ( )

I will most definitely be reading this book to my children in the class, kids often have personality issues, this book will teach them that each and every one of them is unique and special. i love the way she describes herself as adorable, incredible, marvelous, she calls her freckles divine! This shows positive affirmation of self and I wouldlike every child to imbibe this.
