2 copies of my book about me

Here’s a fun activity book to fill out for a priceless keepsake!

Kids will essentially write their own biography in My Book About Me by answering some funny and whimsical questions about themselves and their interests from Dr. Seuss. The result turns out to be a priceless keepsake that is funny and so adorable to look back on years later, I promise!

Have a preschool or kindergarten grad in your life? My Book About Me makes the best gift.

I am so surprised at how many people haven’t heard of this Dr. Seuss book as it was one of my favorites, and I highly recommend it for any kindergarten-aged kids to start filling one out. What a unique and thoughtful gift this would be for a tiny graduate!

It’s a creative writing activity and will become a priceless memory piece. I also like that it has a sturdy hardcover that will hold up over time. It’s like peeking back in time at a really special age since the target age for this book is 4-8.

In fact, I love to give this classic Dr. Seuss book as a baby shower gift or birthday gift for kids because usually it’s something most people won’t receive duplicates of.

Each page in My Book About Me has unique questions to answer such as:

“My favorite food is ____.”
“My teeth I counted them. I have ____ up top, and ____ downstairs.”
“My home has ____ steps. There are ____ forks in my house.”
“My longest hair is ____ inches.”

It definitely has some educational value and is a great way to capture a snapshot into your child’s world to look back on later.

Dr. Seuss My Book About Me from 1985 and now

In fact, I still have My Book About Me that I filled out in 1985!

This book is over 50 years old and is still relevant today! My kids found it hilarious to read my answers as all the toys I mentioned are from the 80’s like Charmkins, Cabbage Patch Kids, and Alf. My mom must not have bought my younger brother his own copy, because on some of my pages my answers are crossed out and he wrote in his own! LOL! 😂

My kids are much older now, but they were excited to fill out their own books around age 5 or 6. I’m so glad we can look back and enjoy their cute answers every so often. My son, pictured above, still likes the same three foods as his favorite 11 years later!

    Does anyone have this book? Would it be a good one for an adopted child – like are the questions about them now, or about them as babies, or both? Anything about the parents or siblings?

      I have this book from when I was a kid and bought one for my daughter too! It’d be great for an adopted child because it’s all about who they are now.. how many teeth, what hair cut, what color eyes, favorite things, what they want to be when they grow up, etc.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes I think so! – the questions are about them and their home and interests now.

  2. Tammy

    I have this one from when I was a child and my kids love when I read it to them. I’ve been wanting to get one for each of them. Thanks for posting!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Ann

    At what age should this book be started at? It’s probably for younger kids, but I never started one for my daughter who’s a teen.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ages 4-8 is what the book recommends. That’d be fun if someone wrote a teen or adult version!

    • frances

      I would suggest the “question a day” books for older kids. I found one on amazon that asks a question for the child to answer about themself every day for a year, and then has three spaces so they can redo it for three years and see their answers change! Really cool for preteens/teens

    I have mine from over 40 years ago!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      That’s so awesome 👏!

  5. Ashlye

    My brother and I each had one! We loved how our pictures were on them!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes!!! I love that part too!

  6. Sally

    I had this book about 40 years ago and got a copy for my now 20 year old son when he was kindergarten age. It was fun for me and he had fun too. I still remember waiting by the mailbox with my son for our mailman so we could get a signature of a mailman. And counting how many steps we have, etc… I am going to snag a couple for gifts for my neices.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yay Sally! I have those same memories too!! And counting our forks LOL

  7. Patty
