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.
In This Is Me a teacher tells her class about her
great-grandmother’s dislocating journey from home to a new
country with nothing but a small suitcase to bring along.
And she asks: What would you pack? What are the things you
love best? What says “This is me!” With its lively, rhyming
language and endearing illustrations, it’s a book to read
again and again, imagining the lives of the different
characters, finding new details in the art, thinking about
what it would be like to move someplace completely different.
It’s an interactive book, too: Tucked into the back cover is
a sturdy pop-up suitcase. And as a younger reader fills the
suitcase, he or she learns a lot about what really matters:
Now YOU take this case/ and imagine it’s true,/ that you’re
leaving and needing/ to choose what says YOU.
