I Like Myself!

Karen Beaumont, Author, David Catrow, Illustrator Harcourt Children's Books $16 (32p) ISBN 978-0-15-202013-2
I Like Myself! by Karen Beaumont (Baby Danced the Polka), illus. by David Catrow, is a breezy affirmation of self. The rhymes can be goofy (""I'd still like me with fleas or warts,/ or with a silly snout that snorts""), but even when they are straightforward, as they are in the beginning (""I like me on the inside too/, for all I think and say and do""). Catrow's (Plantzilla) typically zany illustrations up-end them (for the ""I like me on the inside"" verse, he shows the narrator and her horrified dog in X-ray mode).
