I really enjoy reading these books to young students. This book talks about a variety of kids. Children with braces, glasses, black hair or red hair, each student states something about themselves that they like.At the end of the book there is a mirror. I like to pass this book around to each student. They will look into the mirror and state what they like about themselves. Then I have the student’s partner up and tell their peers something that they like about them.Allia Nolan, the author, does...
This book is one of my new favorites. I had never read it before and chose it for a project in my diversity class and I am so glad I chose this book. All of the kids are so different and they embrace it and love it. It is very important to teach kids that being different is a good thing and that they should love themselves. Bullying is a big problem in most schools and I think this book is perfect to read to younger elementary classes to show them that everyone is awesome and to treat them with
Review: This is one of my favorite books right know. I enjoyed reading this book to my classroom. It talks about how it is okay to be different we are all not the same and that's what makes us. Also at the end of the book its a mirror you could use this as a learning experience if you wanted have the child pass the book around and look in the mirror and have them share what the like about themselves.
What I like about me by Allia Zobel Nolan, is an amazing book that illustrates the differences in each child. Every character in the book gets to describe what they like about themselves although different from others. At the end of the book the author has a mirror and ask the child to tell what they like about themselves. I rated the book 5 stars for its potential in social emotional development and encouraging children to love themselves the way they are.
Allia Nolan reaches out to kids with this book about being yourself. In this book, Nolan describes how in this "perfect" world it is okay to be different and stand out with such things as braces or glasses. The tone and style of this writing is uplifting. This book does not tear down anyone for what they look like or what they act like. I would say the type of diversity in this story is the different kids. They may be different skin colors, or they may be different in a way that one has no hair,...

This book is about the things that we as people can like about ourselves. This book reminds me that I must remember to think about the things about myself that I like. I like this book because it does a great job of normalizing our differences from each other as people. This book has a positive vibe and does a good job of showing off each thing about people that they might feel uncomfortable with. This book embraces many different cultures and shows the importance of being nice to ourselves. Whe...
The kids in What I Like About Me! are as different as night and day. Some adore the fact that their braces dazzle and gleam, others feel distinguished when they wear their glasses. Still others wouldn't trade their big feet for a lifetime of free video games. A mylar mirror embedded in the last page let kids take a look at themselves and decide what they like best about themselves. This fun-loving book proves to kids that, in a world where fitting in is the norm, being different is what makes us...
This story highlights the importance of loving what makes us who we are. It tells a story about how all children are different and have different features that make us who we are. It explains that we should love the things that make us different than our classmates. At the end of the book, the author included a mirror for children to look into and see who they are. It has such a meaningful lesson in it and I think it is a really good story to read to children to show that it is good to be differ...
The kids in "What I Like About Me," are as different as night and day. And, guess what? They love it.

This fun-loving book, which features entertaining flaps, pull tabs, and touch-and-feel elements such as embedded foil yarn, and more, proves to kids that, in a world where fitting in is the norm, being diffe...
This book has a mirror on the last page - look in it to notice what it is you like about you! I love it. The pages of this book are filled with kids who all look different - some have freckles, some have bigger ears, some have braces...and my favorite is the girl who's hair gets frizzy in the rain (just like me!) I really like the strong message in this book that everyone has unique and different features that make them who they are, and it is okay to stand out from the crowd.
Love, love, LOVE this book! It's a celebration about everything that makes you unique. The children especially loved the end where they got to see themselves in the book (there's a mirror in the back)! I definitely recommend reading this to any small children to get them to love themselves as they are.
I absolutely love this book! It can be used to help with self esteem and acceptance. I read this book to all of my children during their first years of school. they have all come home with something mean somone has said about them. This book helps with loving your difference and feeling special because of them.
This book would be a great book for an "about me" week. The book provides vivid illustrations that show how different everyone is. I enjoyed this book because it encourages children to admire what they like about themselves and others. What I liked most was how engaging the book was. The author invites children to look into a mirror at the end, and share what they like most about themselves.
This is an awesome book for classroom use. This story can relate to topics such as cultural identity and differences, physical attributes, and self confidence. The teacher can ask children at the end of the book what they like about themselves while passing around the mirror, or ask children about the pictures while reading.
This story by Ms. Allia Zobel Nolan, about diversity, is a fun rhyming book with pictures of real children from every walk of life. I loved seeing all the different smiling faces and the pages at the end, where the reader can fill in information about their own friends, is a nice addition. A great reminder that others don't have to be exactly like us to be a friend!
What characteristics do you like about yourself? Your hair? Your wiggly ears? This sweet little board book is appropriate for preschoolers as they develop self-awareness, and notice how they are different from others.
This book is great for teaching children to love just the way they are. And it teaches them that it's ok to be different! I also like how there's a mirror at the end of the book to show that it's good to like themselves.
Very good on pointing out difference in kids. Nice illustration, cover and use of colors. Words are easy to understand and follow along. Stayed on topic made it easy to ask question to kids or kids to teacher.The Mirror in the back added a nice touch, wouldn't change a thing.
Cute story about children saying things that they like about themselves. This is a great message because in todays world everything seems to revolve around the negative and we are just starting to realize how damaging that is. The illustrations are good.
Super cute! Great for talking about good features about people or positive self esteem. From Schaeffer's
This a great story for younger children who need to learn that it is okay to be different. This book is very aesthetically pleasing. However, it seems to be a little stereotypical.
This is a body-positive book. Great for appreciating our differences. This would be great in a preschool storytime.
This was a cute book about differences in people and how we should embrace differences. The pictures are cute and it keeps children's attention.
This book is a great book to teach self esteem. It has very bright and simplistic illustrations that children will definitely enjoy to look at. The vocabulary is also simplistic and easy to follow.
Explains all the things they like about each other.
Good story for helping kids understand social and emotional
Special book that covers a variety of traits.
I thought this book was adorable and very inspirational.
