Philosophical & poetic at once, this picture book shows two children seemingly different, who ask the same kind of questions about themselves & others. It shows us that maybe we are not as different as we seem to be... Wonderful message with great illustrations. — Adriana Gómez Piccolo
Presented as a thoughtful, poetic exchange between two characters -- who don't realize they are thinking and asking the very same questions -- this beautiful celebration of our humanity and diversity invites readers of all ages to imagine a world where there is no you or me, only we.
If the first step toward healing the world is to build bridges of empathy and celebrate rather than discriminate, Why Am I Me? helps foster a much-needed sense of connection, compassion, and love.
