Celebrating every aspect of a child’s identity and individuality, 'I Love Me' bursts with joy with its bouncing, rhyming text and exuberant use of colour and pattern. A small girl and boy tap, thump and twirl, dash, splash and sing about the unique qualities that make them who they are. From the familiar to the funny, the children describe the things their bodies can do, 'I love the way my toes make art', and their emotions, 'I love, love, love me when I’m proud' in this ode to self-acceptance and tolerance. The rhythm and repetition in both the words and pictures is sure to encourage young children to participate in the telling and the boisterous actions.
