Looking Like Me, by Walter Dean Myers, Ill. Christopher Myers

Rating: 5/5

What do you see whan you look into a mirror?

Are you a son, a daughter, an artist or a writer? Who are you and what makes you unique?

The father and son duo of Walter Dean Myers and Christopher Myers deliver a picture book that at first glance is about self-esteem, but it is so  much more. The book is not just about being happy with ourselves; this is a celebration of the differences that make use who we are. It is fun, it is positive and it is inspiring.

If you are looking for a preachy and comforting book, this is not for you. If you are looking for color, vibrance, inspiration, affirmation and hope, then this is the book you need to share with all of the pieces that make you who you are and to share with others to celebrate the uniqueness of what you see when you look in a mirror. 

Coupled with Christopher Myer’s paper and photographic collage, this book of poetry is a visual and auditory treat that will have you nodding your head and pumping your fist in the air.  __________________________________________________________
