My Book About Me Hardcover – September 12, 1969
"The Farmer's Son" by John Connell
"A fascinating portrait of a single sensibility, a born noticer, someone on whom nothing is lost, observing birth and death, the landscape, and his own heritage." ―Colm Tóibín, author of "Brooklyn" Learn more

One of the titles for the younger crowd in the Beginners Books series, My Book About Me has an unusual interactive twist--you make it up as you go along. On each page there's something new to complete, from "I weigh ___ pounds" to "My teeth. I counted them. I have ___ up top. I have ___ downstairs." It's a simple idea, but with a surprising amount of educational value--getting children to name their home country, to recognize and draw in the color of their own eyes, learn their telephone number and address, to name favorite clothes, foods, and colors, and more. Finally, there's a two-page spread where each owner of the book can write his or her own story. Illustrator Roy McKie's style is halfway between the P.D. Eastman of Are You My Mother and the mainstream Seuss of Cat in the Hat and Thidwick: The Big-Hearted Moose. (Ages 4 to 8) --Richard Farr

We've collected every single Seuss children's book, but there are three books in particular that we've now ordered four copies of, because they can be personalized by the grandkids to make them truly "their own"! This one, along with "I Can Write! A Book by Me, Myself" and "I Can Draw It Myself, By Me, Myselff" will become treasured keepsakes, little "snapshots" of where they were developmentally that they can look back on one day with a smile.
While the other two are terrific as well, this one is definitely our favorite. SIXTY pages just BRIMMING with fun facts your child fills in about him/herself, and be able to author his/her own little autobiography! This is somewhat along the lines of a baby book you'd receive as a baby shower gift, with pages where your child can trace his hand and foot, etc, but there's oh so much more in the way of fun facts for him/her to fill in to help them remember "where their head was at" at that age, with a little help from Dr. Seuss and many bright, colorful illustrations! Can't recommend this book highly enough!
We've thoroughly enjoyed being able to so closely participate in and observe our grandkids' growth and development, and finding new ways to encourage both. These books have been fun tools to use toward that end. We truly treasure our little guys - we'd take a dozen more gladly!
