My father regularly traveled from our home in Chicago to NYC on business and he always had a gift for my brother and me upon his return. One time when I was between the ages of two and four the gift was a book -- a large picture book called "Me Too" --because I always said "me too" to no matter what my brother wanted to do. The book, mostly in black and white and shades of gray, was about a duck family. The littlest duck was called Me Too -- he too always wanted to copy what his elder sibblings were doing. And he was colored yellow. Unfortunately I no longer have my copy and I haven't been able to find it for sale anywhere, so I don't remember the entire story. But that I still remember it at all -- and I'm almost 70 -- is a kudo to the impact of books on children.
One more thing that I do remember about the story. His sibblings got their little brother, Me Too, in a whole lot of trouble on purpose. At the end of the book he turned bright pink.
If anyone out there knows where I can find a copy of this precious book, please let me know.
