An ALA Notable Children's Book * Multiple starred reviews

"Engaging" -- ALA Booklist (starred review)

"A compelling portrait." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Funny and poignant." -- School Library Journal (starred review)

Honest and engaging, award-winning author Jean Little's beloved Hey World, Here I Am is told in a series of poems, observations, and vignettes.

Kate Bloomfield has got a lot to say--about school and friends and parents, about cartwheels (she can't do them), about parsnips (she won't eat them), about being alone and being herself, about life and love...even about Dave Nelson, who doesn't know she's alive. Outspoken, funny, sometimes confused but always observant, Kate is writing it all down--Hey World, Here I Am
