I Get to Be Me

I Get to Be Me

by Grant Kollman, illustrations by Vikrant Singh


A young boy, who doesn’t want to go to school because of all the adversity he faces from bullies and others, would rather stay at home where through his imagination he can have amazing adventures and avoid being the person he really is. By discovering that being himself is an adventure, he realizes the many wonderful events and friends he’ll miss if he doesn’t go out and be himself!


Wow! – Fantastic book for the kiddos! It rivals Goodnight Moon! The author is clearly talented. Can we get the next book in 3D?? – Anonymous

Grant KollmanBorn and raised in the small town of Stockton, Kansas, provided me with the all-American childhood with the freedom to explore an adventurous spirit. While attending the University of Kansas this adventurous spirit began to flourish and I truly understood the significance of my individualism both socially and intellectually.

Not an overly enthusiastic student, the idea behind the book came to me when my mother called, concerned that my social activities were getting in the way of my studies as she said it must be fun to be you, I replied it’s great, every day I get to be me.
