Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Amazon Best Books of the Month, January 2011: In I’m Not. two friends with very different personalities and talents celebrate the activities they each do well, and the one that matters most--being a true blue friend. Without becoming cliché, I'm Not. demonstrates that whether we are shy or outgoing, good at art or good at spelling, everyone brings something special to a friendship.--Seira Wilson

From Booklist

The title is the refrain in this picture book about two very different but devoted crocodile friends. Fanciful Evelyn hangs from a tree and imagines that she is a poison apple; “I’m not,” says her friend, the unnamed narrator. Fashion-minded Evelyn costumes herself in lampshades and fancy pearls, but her friend prefers to wear a brown paper bag on her head. When mischievous Evelyn is sent to the principal’s office for making a bubble-gum statue of him, her friend defends her by saying that Evelyn is an artist. Then everything turns around. Evelyn says she is “stinky at spelling,” and her friend says, “I’m not.” Evelyn is also crummy at karate, scared of the dark, and the “worst at making cookies,” all of which her friend can help with. What they both need is a best pal, always there through thick and thin, which each one finally yells, “I am!” The slapstick scenarios, closing with the friends’ loyalty and bonding, make great fun, and Weinstock extends the feelings and humor with uncluttered images reminiscent of James Marshall's work. Preschool-Grade 1. --Hazel Rochman

I read it to my grandchildren and when I was finished, they wanted me to read it again and again.

This preschool-age book has a great message about appreciating your own strengths, as well as those of your friends.

They are much smaller than they could be on the iPad resulting in lots of frustrating white space.

This is a fabulous story for young kids. It teaches them to accept who they are without being preachy. I read it to my grandchildren and when I was finished, they wanted me to read it again and again. It's a perfect bed time book. And the illustrations are wonderful.

Lots to love with this book! Great writing, wonderful illustrations, fun characters--like the dynamic Evelyn who's not one single bit ordinary, (Band-aids with pearls . . . Trust me!)and a very important message about self-acceptance without all the boring preach. Nice!
