Stacy can't wait to start her new class project, making an "About-Me" box. Into it will go special things that she likes. Jiwon's putting a scrap of her old baby dress in her About-Me box. Eddie's putting pictures of food in his. But Stacy can't think of one thing to put in hers.How can Stacy make her About-Me box as special as Jiwon's or Eddie's? She has to do something fast. Can she turn her box of troubles into a box of delights?

I thought this was a great book for young kids espically for those whom just starting school. This year instead of an about-me box, my son's class done a about-me bag. It's the same as the box but they had to put 5 things in a little brown paper luch bag,of things that tells about them and they could decorate there bags. I thought that was just an alsome idea for the little chaps to get to know each other and I had fun helping him fill his up. We put in all kinds of stuff, like a family photo,a toy car,his favorite DVD which is Cars lol, candy wrapper and sent in bag of candy where he could share with his class. Needless to say the little tikes enjoyed themselves not only from the candy but from learning about each other.
Everybody's special no matter what you put in a box or bag. We are all unique otherwise the world sure would be a boring place....
