and#8220;Little one, / whoever you are, / wherever you are, / there are little ones / just like you / all over the world.and#8221; So begins the Australian author Mem Foxand#8217;s joyful picture book Whoever You Are, a celebration of the worldand#8217;s diverse cultures, both our similarities and differences. Leslie Strauband#8217;s innovative, colorful, folk artand#8211;style oil paintings of children from all corners of the globe are bordered with photographs of hand-carved, bejeweled framesand#8212;and they all reflect Foxand#8217;s message that no matter where we come from, within our hearts and#8220;Joys are the same, / and love is the same. / Pain is the same, / and blood is the same.and#8221; A gem!

A native of New Orleans, Leslie Staub wrote this story after experiencing Hurricane Katrina. Yet this bookand#8217;s rhythmic, bluesy text and hip, eye-catching illustrations are just right for anyone whoand#8217;s ever felt those mysterious feelings of sadnessand#8212;then found that hope and sunnier skies are close at hand.
