I loved reading this empowering book because it helped adults and children to feel great about themselves. This book is full of poems to empower kids to love themselves and to keep their heads up high. One of the poems in the book “I’m glad I’m Me” is called “When I grow Up” about a little girl who dreams of being a pilot, an inventor, and a president! As you can see she has a lot of expectations for herself. She believes she is going to be something interesting and unique as she gets older. Another poem called “I Know all the Sounds that the Animals Make,” shows this little girl who can make animal noises. In my opinion, I think this poem is to helps kids to be creative, unique and to keep them out of trouble. One more poem I found very interesting and empowering was the poem “My mother took Me Skating. I think this poem was written to help kids spend time with their parents more and to love to get involved in academic sports and interests. I like this book because it gave me a reason to read and it empowered me to know that I can be whatever I want to be that’s productive. It kept me interested and always laughing. What I didn’t like about this book was that some of the poems where awkward and did not really make much sense. But I would highly recommend this book to any parent who loves their child. Thank you.
