In I like Being Me, 26 rhyming poems invite children to believe in themselves, learn from their mistakes, cooperate, share, help others, tell the truth, make positive choices, and more. Each poem is paired with a black-and-white photograph of children illustrating the theme. Because the poems are short, you can read them in just moments. Children can memorize their favorites, recite them, talk about them, act them out, and get ideas for creating their own poems. Each poem is clear, understandable, and relevant to children's everyday lives; each offers many possibilites for thought-provoking discussion and learning.
