The Lovereading4Kids comment

Longlisted for the 2017 Klaus Flugge Prize | September 2016 Debut of the Month This quirky, unusual and inspiring book follows a little girl on a journey of discovery in a variety of museums. ‘Everyone says I’m going to love the museums,’ she says, and she does, finding things that fascinate her, from ancient toys that are just like her own, to giant bugs. She explores museums in gardens and wonders about those in space, and finishes by showing readers into the Museum of Me. The collage style gives a hand-made feel that underlines the importance of a personal response to works of art and the final spread demonstrates how museums are created out of ordinary people’s lives and experiences. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

The Museum of Me by Emma Lewis

The Museum of Me follows a little girl on a journey of discovery to find out what museums are and what they have inside them. Brimming with anticipation, she finds giant bugs and peculiar beasts, ancient pots and contemporary paintings, feathery leaves and flowers as big as her own head! Marveling at museums old, new, outdoors, and even in outer space, she soon realizes that her favorite museum of all is waiting for her at home: The Museum of Me.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
