About the Author
What People are Saying About This
"Free to be…you and me. Each and every one of us has our own special song to sing. As a musician, I get to hear this all the time—amazing voices, high and low, sweet and funky, all coming together like some great big choir. This book is just like that. Look at all the wonderful art. Read the funny poems and awesome stories. Each page is ONE IN A MILLION, and they all shout out with the same, unstoppable message: that YOU are the star of your own concert. Just like you—and just like this book—I know I’ll continue to grow and change over the years into new versions of me. We’re all free to be…you and me. And that’s THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS."
School Library Journal, October 20, 2008
“This upbeat volume’s message remains valid, and it will be enthusiastically greeted by fans of the original (many of whom are now parents themselves) and those interested in anthologies about empowerment.”
"Free to Be… You and Me was so special to us when were children, and now, we can’t tell you how excited we are to be turning the pages of the 35th Anniversary edition. …This book, which comes with a CD, is one for your whole family to treasure.”
Curled Up With a Good Kid’s Book (www.curledupkids.com)
" Each page features a feast for the eyes in the form of sweet and funny drawings, and a positive message to children about the virtues of equality, kindness and self-determination. For those who grew up with Marlo Thomas’s show, this book will provide many hours of nostalgic musing, and the opportunity to expose their children to the same inspirational message about embracing individuality... There are wonderful messages here for young children trying to determine who they are in the world."
