Whoever You Are by Mem Fox, a gentle picture book for younger listeners, is a simple and delightful introduction to the amazing differences between races and cultures.
The message of Whoever You Are is clear and lovely – we may look different and live differently but we all share the same feelings.
This picture book takes the reader through our lives – our schools, skin colour, houses, words – the illustrations introduce the fantastic differences. Mem Fox then develops this by celebrating our similarities as human beings – our hearts, our smiles and our tears.
When we reviewed this picture book we loved the beautiful, colourful and lively illustrations celebrating our different lives. The simple language and repetition of key words, will be great for emerging readers.
