Children's Book Review & Giveaway: What Makes Me A Me? by Ben Faulks & David Tazzyman 

Everybody is different in their own unique way, and this thought-provoking children's book explores the things that make us who we are. 
As the little boy in the story discovers, whilst we have things in common with others, and even inherit traits from our families, no two people are the same. 
We each have our own identity, and What Makes Me A Me highlights this in a very clever and funny way. 
The sketch-like illustrations (by David Tazzyman - illustrator of You Can't Take An Elephant On A Bus), are bright and detailed, adding to the charm of the story.
The book is released this month and has an RRP of $14.99, and I am pleased to let you know that the lovely people at Bloomsbury  have given me a copy of What Makes Me A Me to give away to one lucky follower!

  1. This sounds like a great book! Thanks for sharing. :-)

  2. If I won I would give this book to my best friends little boy. He is an amazing little soul and about to become a big brother. While I am sure he is going to be a fantastic brother, I know it's going to be a tricky time for him as he navigates his new role and the changes in his family. I would love to share this book with him, to remind him just how special he is in his own way.

  3. This would be a great book to read to kids. I miss reading to kids!! Good luck with the competition. Thanks for linking up for Life This Week 40/52. Next week: With $1000 I would...
