I thought that this was a really fun way for young children to identify who are their "favourite" people in their lives.

I liked the way that the book was set out and that the book had a wide range of people from different ethnic backgrounds and a wide range of diversity was shown and how the book shows that children can like people for a wide variety of reason too, none of which are wrong.

I liked the second at the end which encouraged questions and probing around the topic to make it a more than a traditional story book.

It is 4 stars from me for this one - highly recommended!

Ugghhh.  I thought this story would never end.  It has an unending use of the word and…  It is like one majorly long run on sentence told you a parent by a four year old.  The illustrations sit on top of the words like thought planes.  There is nothing I like about this book.  Nothing.

I love to read with my nieces and nephews and this would be a great book to read with them. In My Favourite People, the child talks about his Favourite People and why he likes them. It's not just his parents, but his aunt and uncle, librarian, postman, teacher, and more. There are discussion questions at the end to talk about each page. It takes a village to raise a child and this book helps children think about who is in their "village".

After the first page shows a group of people, the book goes on to describe the young protagonist’s favorites, starting with Aung Meg and ending with his parents. Everyone in the group photo—painting?—is featured, each for different reasons, from music to magic to soccer. It’s cute that there’s ethnic diversity in his family, and that one of his friends is a girl.
At the end there’s suggested activities.

While I thought the illustrations were quite cute, the book could have done with a bit more narrative. I thought the ending was quite weak, and the characters could have been brought together with more purpose. However, I appreciated the diversity showcased in the book. The easy expression of emotion was also admirable. The discussion questions at the end of the book also make it a good candidate for a read-aloud treat for very young children.

This a good book for young readers to identify their Favourite people in their lives. Full of diverse characters from all walks of life it will encourage kids to see the value that people bring to their own lives. Especially like the discussion prompts at the end of the book to encourage readers to relate to the story.
