Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1–This rhyming picture book offers positive activities that youngsters can use to get attention. The suggestions range from asking, Can I help? to doing some things all by themselves or inviting a parent to play. Offer to share–even give Sister half./Make silly faces so Baby will laugh. Katayamas ink-and-watercolor, cartoonlike children with tiny elliptical dots for eyes tend to be a bit cloying, but the pictures convey a sense of harmony in the home. An additional purchase with limited child appeal.–Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

This book is a favorite with my children. It has proven a great conversation starter with them on what is good behavior and it offers "twelve ways" to children on how they can get their parents' attention through positive means. When we read it together they will often say "I do that! I do that!" -- taking pride in their positive behavior.

The pictures and words are simple so that even the younger ones will page through it on their own and try out one of the "twelve ways" with their parents.

I highly recommend this book.

This wonderful book is a great choice for reading to young children! It is educational, of course, offering kids positive ideas for getting attention from Mom and Dad. Most importantly, though, it's also a joy to read - captivating kids with its fun rhymes and cheerful illustrations. A winning combination and a must-have for the bookshelf of every family with young children.

Format: Hardcover
Kennedy-Moore has written a really useful and entertaining book for children of all ages. My 2-year-old is captured by the rhymes and rhythm on each page and enjoys the illustrations as well. She "reads" the book to herself, using the illustrations to remind her of the "right" ways to get my attention. "What About Me" is among her favorite books, and will be in a place of honor on our bookshelf for years to come!

Format: Hardcover
An altogether winning book: the verse captures precisely the thought and language of children and parents, and the illustrations delight with their portrayals of kids' moods in different situations. Every family should read--and reread--'What About Me' together.
