Product Details


“[E]ach question and simple sentence is there to encourage dialogue and self-discovery from young readers. . . . A sublime joy.” —STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews

“Shapiro envelops big ideas within this whimsically affirming exploration of individuality and selfhood. . . . A welcome, wandering contemplation of a book about being ‘OURSELVES together.'” —STARRED REVIEW, Publishers Weekly

“Celebrate and ponder the joy and power of knowing one’s self in this contemplative and encouraging tale. . . . [C]aregivers and readers will find ample discussion opportunities on subjects such as self-discovery and thoughtfulness. The conclusion celebrates the differences found among friends, and serves as an invitation to know and honor one’s self. Shapiro’s rich, mixed-media illustrations feature a muted palette and abound with details that will enthrall readers from start to finish.” —School Library Journal

“[A] warm fuzzy book perfect for sharing with someone small who needs a bit of affirmation. . . . Choose My Self, Your Self for a cozy one-on-one reading session at home or in a kindergarten classroom.” —CM Reviews

“Every word of the text and each picture reflects E.M. Forster’s adage to ‘only connect,’ but translated for children.” —Imaginary Elevators

“A delightfully strange story about how to appreciate myself, yourself and ourselves together.” —Quebec Library Association
