"A reminder that we all once came from somewhere else." --TIME magazine
"An excellent conversation-starter that encourages interactivity and imagination."--Elle.com "[This Is Me] celebrates the diversity of America." --Booklist "Kids will find Curtis' "to know yourself, you must know your roots" message resonant and will be scrambling to fill the pop-up suitcase at the back of the book with items that say to the world, "HI THERE, THIS IS ME!" An excellent springboard for school-age kids to discover who they are and where they come from. " --Kirkus Reviews "Jamie Lee Curtis has a knack for simplifying complex topics...and interpreting them in a way children can easily understand...Her latest title, This Is Me: A Story of Who We Are & Where We Came From (Workman Publishing) is about emigration, immigration, and the idea of leaving the old behind for the promise of the new. It's a celebration of diversity and self, helping young children to begin the process of discovering what makes them unique and what connects all of us together." --Story Monsters Ink "To Curtis' clever, thoughtful verses, Cornell makes sure every page is enhanced with entertainment and education both - from pop culture icons to the surly older teenage sibling to bookish devotions to cultural lessons and beyond. That the book then becomes an introspective, deeply contemplative interactive adventure by the final spread is a gift to every young (and not so youthful, ahem) reader indeed." --The BookDragon(Smithsonianpa.org)
