With a sense of humor unique to children, this simple yet spirited picture book explores a young girl’s growing self awareness. When Mimi’s mother offers her help in a variety of situations, Mimi says “No, I want to do it myself!” Brimming with boldness and courage, Mimi expresses her desire to dress herself, pour her own milk, walk by herself, and climb the stairs by herself. Filled with charming, hand-drawn illustrations, this lively story helps children learn to explore their surroundings and enjoy the growth process.
