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!
