From the #1 New York Times bestselling creative team of Jamie Lee Curtis and Laura Cornell comes a timely picture book about immigration. Raising important identity issues like “Where did we come from?” and “Who are we?” This Is Me is as delightful as it is important, sure to stimulate dinner table conversation. It’s an interactive book, too: Tucked into the back cover is a sturdy pop-up suitcase.
Why we like it: There is always room for another book about immigration and this picture book, told in rhyme, encourages young readers to put themselves in the shoes of immigrants when the teacher asks her students to imagine what they would choose to take if they had to leave their home and move to a foreign country. Children will want to explore their own family’s history and will grow in empathy for others with different cultural backgrounds as they read this important story.
