Book Description

A rhyming story of opposites that uses animal charactistics to help us explore ourselves and our feelings."Im as quick as a cricket, Im as slow as a snail. Im as small as an ant, Im as large as a whale." Parents and teachers choose this big square book for the message of self-confidence. Toddlers love it for the singsong phrases and Don Woods large, silly, endearing illustrations, which feature a boy mimicking different kinds of animals. At one point, he is pictured sipping tea formally with a fancy poodle ("Im as tame as a poodle") and on the very next page he is swinging through trees ("Im as wild as a chimp"). Whether brave or shy, strong or weak, in the end the young boy celebrates all different, apparently contradictory parts of himself. With a confident grin, he lifts his arms up and declares, "Put it all together and youve got ME!" (Baby to age 6)
