This little girl has her mother's eyes, her father's hair, and her Aunt Jen's funny little toe.
Or does she?
In fact, she is also totally, thoroughly, wonderfully herself.

About the Author:

Cats have permitted Karla Kuskin to observe their antics for a very long time. She's found that they especially like to nap on her papers when she is trying to write about them! She has written dozens of poetry collections and picture books, including Roar and More; The Philharmonic Gets Dressed; The Animals and the Ark; and Moon, Have You Met My Mother? She has won numerous awards for her witty way with words, including the prestigious NCTE Award for Excellence in Poetry for Children and the Children's Book Council's Lifetime Achievement Award. She lives with her husband and Velma the cat on Bainbridge Island, Washington.

From Kirkus Reviews:

In a variation on the familiar phrase You look just like . . . , Kuskin's (The Sky Is Always in the Sky, 1998, etc.) heroine has her aunt Grace's smile, her grandma's eyebrows, and her father's feet, except for her little toe, which is a lot more like Aunt Jen's. Her family compares each part of her anatomy to someone else. After all the similarities are noted, the feisty girl stands up and proudly proclaims that although she may look like others, she is no one else but me. The text is bouncy and rhythmic and lends itself to reading aloud. Wolcott's (Dog Days: Rhymes Around the Year, not reviewed) bold gouache and watercolor illustrations show the little girl's extended family having fun at the beach. Grandmother, parents, aunts, and their dogs enjoy the day swimming, playing, bicycling, sunbathing, and basking in the warm, sunny weather. The endpapers extend the action by showing the family driving to the beach at the beginning of the book and going home in darkness at the end. The pages are drenched with color, filled with movement, and if the readers look carefully, they can pick out the resemblances, too. An upbeat, happy, colorful little story with a lesson for grown-ups. (Picture book. 3-6) -- Copyright © 2000 Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
