Looking Like Me, Walter Dean Myers

Just 32 pages long, this brief, little picture book would be a welcome read for children of all ages, adults too, because of the message of self-esteem it imparts. I enjoyed listening to it and am sorry I did not get to see the illustrations. The narrators read it with inspiring expression and feeling. Everyone reading or listening to this lyrical, rap-rhythm presentation of the book, will get the message of hope and confidence, the message to believe in one’s own ability to be all that is possible. It is an uplifting message that is sorely needed, not only in urban communities, but everywhere in the world!
