This is a picture book about pretending and using the imagination. Kids of all ages will be able to relate to the ideas in this book because they pretend a lot.
This picture book is about a little girl who has a choice to pretend she’s a monkey, princess, kitty cat, pirate, dragon–taming knight, and astronaut. She refuses all of these invitations because she wants to be herself. All she wanted is to be ME!
Kids of all ages are taught by the media to be anything else but who they truly are. They are encouraged to dress like others and to do what others are doing, even if such behaviors are destructive. This story will help kids get over these idea and inspire them to be themselves.
What a great message for kids.
