This is such a cute all about me book. I love that Me: A Compendium has a hardcover book as well so the cover will not get bent. The beginning page has a dedication section. This is so cute! After your child finishes this book they can dedicate it to someone and give it to them as a gift. How adorable! There is a lot of drawing, coloring and writing in this art book. It has pages for things your child likes the most, does not like, favorites, etc. Foods, feelings, weather, where they live, holidays, etc. are all covered in this all about me book. Some pages are a bit more interactive. There is a pages that says how many steps from my room to the front door and another has them see how many jumping jacks they can do before getting tried. This is so cute. There were some harder ones for us like what team you cheer for. Since we are not into sport we picked like when we play on teams or her in gymnastics. I love that they have a about page for when your child was a baby. They have a who my friends are and what wishes you have. One says what I wish my parents had named me and she choose Strawberry Shortcake.
I had went to take the paper cover off of the book because I thought it would be easier to write in it if we took that cover off. Well to my surprise there was about me stuff under the cover! Both on the inside of the paper cover as well on the front and back of the book itself. Super cool! Inside the paper cover has your child write the super secret stuff in their life. And the front and back of the book are more about me questions. I will say the paper cover is a bit slick so I would suggest using Sharpie so that it does not smear or bleed onto the hardcover when you go to put it back on. If you use something else I would make sure to let it dry for awhile to insure it does not smear or bleed. This book was a ton of fun for our daughter.
Some of the things that we use even if I like them I do not know if we will use again with our youngest but this is definitely something I will make sure she does. I also hope that both of our girls choose to dedicate their all about me books to me. This came with our 2nd grade Timberdoodle kit and I am so glad that I kept it in the kit when I made my custom it. Super cute, extremely fun for kids and I cannot wait for her to finish the whole book. I am choosing to wait until she complete the book to have her figure out who she is dedicating the book, too. This is one I really recommend because it works a lot of skills without the child knowing that they are practicing their writing and art skills.
