I'm Not by Pam Smallcomb

This children's picture shows that opposites attract...

Schwartz & Wade Books sent me a copy of this fun children's picture book for review (thank you).  Robert Weinstock is the illustrator and two small crocodiles are the characters.  You can currently purchase a copy at your local bookstore.

Ms. Smallcomb talks about friendship and self-esteem.  The shyer crocodile admires her friend and says that everything Evelyn is good at, she's not.  But Evelyn is a good sort and shows her how many things she's good at and Evelyn isn't.

Help your child learn that each of us has different talents and working together is what makes life more fun.  It would work well for a read-a-loud story, too.  Let the little ones act out the roles and it will make more of an impression on them.

The story flows well, is fun to read and will make both you and your child smile.  Stop by your local bookstore and take a look for yourself!

Happy reading.
