Dr. Seuss has created some of the most amazing children’s books. But this book, My Book About Me, is one of the most unique of his creations. And with Dr. Seuss that is saying something. What makes My Book About Me so unique you might ask? Well it is a book with story by you, about you, and nothing else. In My Book About Me you are the author with a little help from Dr. Seuss and Roy McKie. You have the opportunity to write a story about your life and your favorite things. It even includes incredible illustrations for you to finish that will go along with your life’s story.
Kids will love this book because it will be fun for them to write about their favorite things. But our choice this month is also an educational book. It will help your child learn more about themselves, what they like about themselves, and it will help them to learn important personal information like their address and their phone number. This book is great for children ages 4 and up. It also serves as a type of diary, or personal scrapbook. In a few years when your little one is all grown up you will both enjoy looking back and reading about their life in their own words. It s a chronicle of their personal growth. Besides, what better way to encourage your child to write and read than by letting them write their very own book?
This month we highlight this incredible book because it uses a unique way of getting children interested in reading. Dr. Seuss was an avid supporter of children’s literacy during his life and since his passing his foundations have continued to search for ways to initiate young readers into a world of magic and knowledge. As parents it is also our responsibility to get our children interested in reading. With this book we are one step closer to creating a whole new generation of readers!
