I am the only ME I AM
who qualifies as me;
no ME I AM has been before,
and none will ever be. Three very different children reveal their individual personalities in a series of visual mini-adventures. Readers meet a mischievous tomboy who would rather roller-skate than wear a frilly dress, an inquisitive nature-loving boy, and an artistic ballerina who puts her own spin on Swan Lake. Finally, in a wild and funny climax, the three collide - only to discover a world full of unique and special "ME's."
With exuberant art and gleeful verse, this empowering celebration of individuality and diversity is just right for any young child discovering his or her own self - and the fun of being ME!

Davenier portrays each child with enough specific details and comedic vignettes to create three visual stories even though the poem itself does not differentiate character traits or personal effects.
