This is another Mikey and Me book, written so little eyes you have trouble seeing can really see the words. This book contains words from the Dolch reading list, works with picture/word recognition and repetition and rhyme as it tells the story of 'Mikey & Me And The Sea.' Once again there is a very important message in this book, and that message is to be yourself, a familiar theme in many Penelope Dyan books. Why does Dyan keep repeating this message? She repeats this message because so many of us are unhappy with who we are; and this is very, very wrong. Self image and self confidence are necessary elements we need in order to grow up and to be a strong and healthy individual. So go and explore the sea with 'Mikey & Me,' and be everything that you can possibly be---because you are special! And there is no one out there exactly like you. We are like fingerprints. No two of us are exactly alike, even if we are twins. Penelope Dyan is a former teacher, an attorney and an award winning writer. Two of her books for children have been chosen by the UK Arts Council and are on display at the Saisoon Poetry library on the fifth floor of the Royal Exhibit Hall at Southbank Centre, London. Two of her other books are listed in the best books (top ten) on the Pukeke Reading list in Australia; and her book "Surfer Girl" was best teen book at both the 2008 New York Book Festival and the 2008 Hollywood Book Festival and is also recognized on the Girls Voices In Literature Database, Miami University Florida.
