I Am Someone—I Am Me by Audrey C. Hayes Summary
Do you remember what it was like to see the world through a child’s eyes? What it was like to take in the vibrancy of the colors, sounds, and smells with all the precious imagination, speculation, and childlike wonder of an impressionable young mind? Do you remember what it was like to be open and free to experience the happiness, innocence, and beauty of childhood? In I Am Someone; I Am Me, author Audrey C. Haynes shares her creative effort to help build positive self-esteem in children by painting lucid, imaginative pictures of the world as it is seen through the eyes of children. Combining touching, heartwarming poetry and engaging fairy tales with fun, and interactive activities young children should delight in being a part of, it promises to bring to light some of the thoughts, feelings, and impressions young children have about their self-worth and who they are. Creating in a child the sense that they are special, good, and beautiful is the most important thing parents and educators can do to instill positive self-worth. Remembering what it was like to be so impressionable and so vulnerable, the hope is to help build and reinforce our children’s inner sense of worth and goodness and to promote positive, constructive, and wholesome development.
I Am Me by Ram Sundaram Summary
I Am Me is a two-way book that contains twenty short stories, divided into ten individual pairs. Each story in a pair has a corresponding "mate" on the other side, which shares the same title, theme, and to an extent the same concept, but is presented in an entirely different way. One half of the book examines reality, while the other half explores the realms of fantasy. The stories examine various aspects of life, from birth to friendship, love, desire, ambition, prejudice, spirituality, death and the afterlife. Through the two-way structure of the book, I Am Me depicts each tale in two distinct ways, offering a reader a choice between residing in a realistic world, or being lost within the labyrinths of fantasy. The stories are populated by an eclectic group of characters, ranging from a lonely boy who attempts to determine the value of friendship, to two birds named Max and Macs that fight for territory on an apple tree. I Am Me attempts to challenge the segregation of literature into "fact" and "fiction" as well as life into "reality" and "fantasy." These labels are not mutually exclusive, for there is as much truth to every lie, as there are lies in every truth. It is perception that paints the difference between these concepts.

I Am Me by Marlene Ringler Summary
A mother of an adult child with autism ponders what happens to children like hers when their parents and families are no longer around to care for them. I Am Me challenges the values and priorities of institutions, communities, and systems to grapple with what is today referred to as a “tsunami”—the nearly 50,000 children who each year face an adult world so sadly unprepared to deal with their ever-growing needs. Like snowflakes, each autistic is different, no less, and deserves respect. It is a journey told through the prism of a mother who offers, hope, belief, and conviction that the life of a child with autism can and should be fulfilling and rewarding, and who compels readers to engage in helping to make the world a safer and better place for those affected by this mysterious condition. In her personal story, Dr. Marlene Ringler takes us into the world of the autistic and helps us to appreciate the complexities of living in a world where being different is a lifelong struggle. She shares her own investigation of this complex neurological disorder, looking for answers where few, if any, exist. Her fascinating journey directly addresses those very human questions as she presents her research findings and current investigations into the spectrum disorder in everyday language. “Marlene has gifted the autism community with a guide that will be useful to parents and others wishing to understand autism from the autism community at large.” —Stephen Mark Shore, EdD, author of Beyond the Wall: Personal Experiences with Autism and Asperger Syndrome
I Am ME by One of us Summary
As humans we incarnate and evolve through our experiences. We become independent beings capable of willing, feeling and thinking. We can interact, make decisions, judge and find our own truth, identity and uniqueness. But how and why do we do this? We can compare our self creation to making a cake. The basic ingredients for the making of a cake are the same, but they are also always different. The flour may be milled from wheat grown in different parts of the world, the eggs may be laid by different hens and the butter made from milk taken from different cows. These ingredients can be compared to our, inheritance - our start in life - our genetic make up, parents, culture etc. where there is always variation in color, type, size etc. How the ingredients are put together has a profound affect on the final result. The cook, making a cake, can be likened to our experiencing and all the information that we sense and take in to mix together. Baking the cake is like our processing when we program our experiences to create our willing, feeling and thinking. The result is ourselves - just like a cake, which we can eat, throw away or leave to go mouldy. We can enjoy or dislike the result. This is us, our creation to be as we will. Our autobiography is about our evolution and how we sense and program ourselves. How we develop our willing, feeling and thinking to create our soul. This process is unique to human life and enables us to become conscious of the most important part of our being. It is the reason for our existence - to be consciousness of spirit. We can only achieve this through creating ourselves.

Anne is someone who believes deeply in love, and often says to friends, family and colleagues, that when a person finds love, and is able to give and share it freely, as well as receive it wholly while protecting it and treating it with honour and respect, it is then that one has truly found their purpose in life. This is because love is the driving force behind all we do as humanity. Anne was fortunate enough to find a true love in her life at a young age, and unfortunately that true love also at some point, turned into true pain, through various incidents within the relationship, Anne was left alone to wonder about the high price that one may pay for love.
