Synopsis

This is Me by Jamie Lee Curtis, Laura Cornell

What would you take? Imagine you were leaving for a new country and could bring only what would fit in a small suitcase. Which things would you choose to say to the world, Hi there, this is met In this picture, various children - inspired by their remarkable teacher - talk about what they'd bring with them if they could take only one suitcase to their new home: photographs, a favourite book, grandfather's beret. Which things do they love most? What best expresses who they are? At the end, the question is posed to the reader: What would you take? Which things would say to the world, this is met . The book ends with a pop up suitcase, which the child can then fill with his or her favourite things.

Reviews

A reminder that we all once came from somewhere else. --TIME magazine An excellent conversation-starter that encourages interactivity and imagination. --Elle.com [This Is Me] celebrates the diversity of America. --Booklist Kids will find Curtis

-up suitcase at the back of the book with items that say to the world, HI THERE, THIS IS ME! An excellent springboard for school-age kids to discover who they are and where they come from.

- from pop culture icons to the surly older teenage sibling to bookish devotions to cultural lessons and beyond. That the book then becomes an introspective, deeply contemplative interactive adventure by the final spread is a gift to every young (and not so youthful, ahem) reader indeed. --The BookDragon(Smithsonianpa.org)
