What I See in Me is all about looking in the mirror and appreciating who you are as an individual. It's an adorable book about realizing who you are, and that yes, you're different from other people! But that each person is wonderful and unique in their own ways. 

This was a super cute book for little kids, I would say it's better for the 2-4 range than the 4-6 age range. I'd recommend this to preschool and daycare teachers, especially those teaching kids who are just starting to realize that people are all different! I think for others, this would be a 4-5 star read, but we already own a similar book (Happy in Our Skin, by Fran Manushkin) and it's such a favorite in our house, that I can't help but compare them. The text is slightly more appealing to me in Happy in Our Skin, but the illustrations are a bit nicer in What I See In Me. 

I was provided an ARC copy of this book through Netgalley. My thanks to the publisher and the author for providing it to me.
