    One thought on “I Could Be, You Could Be”

    1. A delightful book that allows children to see they could be anything they want to be and best of all "The best thing I could ever be is me." Let the children soar being themselves as they choose the things they want to be, embrace that each child will change what they want to become (when they grow up) many, many different times. My two children did just that and now that they are in college and ending high school. the choice is still limitless within the degrees they choose to study. The world [...]

    2. I liked this book because it talks about things that kids can be or would like to be and then at the end it says, "But the best thing I could ever be is ME!" I think it's a good book for young kids and shows them that it's great being yourself.

    3. A book about the possibilities of the world and the importance of being yourself. Very bright colors painted and outlined in pen. The bold lettering and variation in size along with the rhyming throughout makes it a fun book especially for a classroom.

    4. Edited to add: WOW! Fifth star very much earned! Barefoot read my review and amended the book for the paperback edition. Chimp is now a monkey. How amazing is that!!Barefoot Books have a long tradition of producing interesting picture books and this is no exception. The text, following two children in their games of imagination has a nice rhythm and pleasing rhymes. The illustrations are colourful, with lots of saturated greens and blues that are very attractive. Combined, they make a great text [...]

    5. This is a fairly short book in which children think about what they could be. It doesn't just cover occupations, but also things that would take more imagination (e.g alien or dragon). The illustrations are bright and it has a good ending. However, it's written in rhyme and the meter is out on some of the lines. Also, there are instructions for making masks or a crown in the back of the book, which could be good. However, there are no illustrations or templates for these, so the instructions ass [...]

    6. The idea that children can choose who they want to be isn't new. What sets this apart from other imagine-yourself books is the stunning art by Barroux. While the characters are drawn simply, the texture and color depth of the backgrounds and filler are simply amazing. I could easily imagine framing these pages and putting them on my walls. For the story, I greatly appreciate that the boy and the girl take non-traditional roles, and that no matter who they want to be, the best person they can be [...]

    7. This book was a little too "young" for my 4-year-old but he liked it. There aren't many words per page. The illustrations are darling. It starts off, "I could be the king or queen making all the rules. You could be a dragon guarding all their jewels."The rest of the book is basically the same. I could be . . . . You could be . . . .It ends with "But the best thing I could ever be . . . is ME!"

    8. A sweet picture book for under sixes about a young boy and a girl imagining themselves being various creatures, being an astronaut, a king etc and ending with "but the best thing i could ever be is me."Some of the spreads have pictorial suggestions of how a child could dress up to look like one of these possibilities. There are also instructions at the back on how to make masks - but no pictures! duhQuite good as a conversation or project starter but could have been so much more.

    9. This traditional picture book plays through a child's imagination dreaming of what he/she could be. The major themes are identity and imagination. Children in pre-school through first grade would enjoy this lovely book.

    10. A story about children imagining all the things that they could be, with the important message that no matter what, being oneself is best. includes a mask-making activity in the back. I really appreciate the messages of diversity, self-acceptance, and reaching for the stars that this book promotes.

    11. I have a bit of a hangup with the page that says you can be a chimpanzee and swing by your tail since I've been trying to teach my kids the difference between apes and monkeys (one group has tails while the other doesn't). Otherwise, this was a great book with cool illustrations.

    12. The pictures are pretty, and it does a nice job of getting children to think about what they could do, and the value of being themselves, but it wasn't quite thought provoking enough for my nearly four year old.

    13. Every child pretends to be someone else and this book is perfect for a toddler storytime. The colorful illustrations span the two page spread and and the rhyming one sentence per page text is simple and engaging.

    14. What a wonderful book reminding kids that the most important person they can aspire to be, is themselves!

    15. Fun book to exercise a child's imagination and a potentially good fit for storytime. Rhyming text and bright illustrations add to the audience's enjoyment.

    16. A boy and a girl pretend to be royalty, animals, aliens, and clowns. Simple but forgettable. End matter contains instructions for creating a mask.

    17. This book is very short. It is about all of the things a little boy says he wants to be. The pictures are very cute and the boy is very creative about the things he wants to be.

    18. Illustrations and rhyming text encourage readers to picture themselves becoming a variety of people and things, from an astronaut to an elephant to an alien. Includes instructions for making masks.

    19. Fun rhyming and bright illustrations with a nice message about being yourself. Good for toddler storytime.
