Book Asks, What’s Important?

“This Is Me” is a new book written by Jamie Lee Curtis. It’s about the courage it takes for a family to move their home to another country and it makes kids think about what’s important.

The teacher in the book tells her class a story about a small suitcase her great grandmother packed for her journey to a new country. All the students start to describe the things they would want to stuff into their bag and how difficult it is to make those choices. The best part of the book is the end, where the page opens up to a pop-up suitcase. I put my favorite stuffed lion right in the bag. I liked this book and have read it many times with my grandma.
