An African American girl energetically celebrates her uniqueness. Beaumont's rhyming text describes a confident, joyful, and silly child who appreciates everything about herself. Catrow's colorful surrealistic illustrations, created with watercolor, ink, pencil, and collage, playfully interpret and extend the story. For instance, the illustration of the girl and her pet dog splashing in a bird bath adds another dimension to the text:
I may be called a silly nut
or crazy cuckoo bird-so what?
I'm having too much fun, you see,
for anything to bother me!
The book delighted preschoolers through second graders, who asked to have the book read again and again. They laughed and giggled at the pictures and found something that captivated them on every page. They also enjoyed the rhyming text and commented: "I like myself, too."
Beaumont's words read like a Dr. Seuss book, with a fabulous message and great accompanying illustrations. I like to give the board book version of this book as a baby shower gift to all new parents.
The cover is pink and the illustrations show a girl, but my 2 year old son loves this book and I recommend it HIGHLY to parents and friends of both girls and boys ages 0 - 6 years.
