Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Little one, / whoever you are, / wherever you are, / there are little ones / just like you / all over the world.” So begins the Australian author Mem Foxs joyful picture book Whoever You Are, a celebration of the worlds diverse cultures, both our similarities and differences. Leslie Straubs innovative, colorful, folk art-style oil paintings of children from all corners of the globe are bordered with photographs of hand-carved, bejeweled frames—and they all reflect Foxs message that no matter where we come from, within our hearts “Joys are the same, / and love is the same. / Pain is the same, / and blood is the same.” A gem!

Synopsis:

A celebration of diversity, now in a fresh new format

Synopsis:

Now in a board-book format, this book tells a story that weaves its way around the Earth--across cultures and generations--celebrating the bonds that unite us all. Full-color.

Synopsis:

Every day all over the world, children are laughing and crying, playing and learning, eating and sleeping. They may not look the same or speak the same language. Their lives may be quite different. But inside, they are alike. Stirring words and bold paintings weave their way around our earth, across cultures and generations. At a time when tolerance still needs to be learned, Whoever You Are urges us to accept our differences, to recognize our similarities, and--most important--to rejoice in both.
