The book is about how to stick to yourself and be unique. It tells the children that their own personalities make them different and unique. It encourages children to be themselves, have their own feelings and values. It is okay not to be the same with other people. Children under the age of 5 could benefit from this book, since they might be struggling with their own identity and how everyone else is different at one point or another. The author did full-color illustrations, which make the book looks delightful for children, especially small ones. Recommended for children under the age of 5.

"Hooray for You! A Celebration of 'You-ness'" has an important theme for all ages: be happy with who you are. Early childhood children are young and impressionable. Richmond's book celebrates uniqueness. She defines "you-ness" as being distinct and special individuals. Her book would help my early childhood students think about their unique qualities that make them special. I love the painted illustrations depicting children smiling over their "you-ness." The illustrations would capture my students' attention. My preschool students enjoy sharing about themselves. I would use this book at the beginning of the school year to begin celebrating our new classroom friends. The book would also work well to reinforce individuality in an "All About Me" unit. If you like Hooray for You! A Celebration of "You-ness", I also recommend Todd Parr's books below. They celebrate diversity, individuality, and uniqueness. The illustrations are also bright and intriguing.

I am a first grade teacher and this is one of the books I use in the beginning of the school year. I love the simplicity of her message and the whimiscal way it is presented. Society places great pressure on how we should look, dress, and act. This book reminds kids and grown-ups alike to embrace their unique qualities.

My three-year-old was given this for his birthday. It is already a favorite of his and mine. I plan on reading it to him again and again now and on into the awkward teenage years that are so hard. I have read it on a down day myself. It reminds you that everyone is special just because of the uniqueness that sets you apart.

I bought this book when I was expecting. After 2 years of reading this book to my son, I still can't read the last page without my heart filling with emotion and a tear coming to my eye. I hope this book along with the love and guidence from his mom and dad, will teach him to love himself and to always look for that something special in others.

This book is wonderful for pre teen children, it is a book that a child can take with them all through their life and pass on to their own children some day. I have 3 girls and I read it to all of them and they love it, they are 5, 7 and 11.
