When it comes to young children, there is one thing they love talking about, and that’s themselves! They are also curious to know what makes them special. This is one of the reasons I love starting of the year with an All About Me theme. These books are perfect for an All About Me theme and a great way for your little ones to learn more about themselves and others.
