Me Museum

M.H. Clark, illus. by Louise Lockhart. Compendium, $16.95 (48p) ISBN 978-1-9432

Throughout this book-long tour of what Clark calls the Me Museum (no, not Instagram), children can fill the pages with words and drawings that reflect who they are and the things that are important to them. Accented with bright teals and citrus hues, Lockhart’s line drawings let readers have a say in the museum’s exterior, determine what to charge for admission, paint frescoes in an empty gallery, and fill picture frames with images of important people in their lives and objects spun from their imaginations. An appealing design and plenty of creative prompts provide ample opportunity for children to write, doodle, and reflect on who they are. Ages 5–up. (Mar.)
