Whoever You Are is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
'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 Fox's joyful picture book Whoever You Are , a celebration of the world's diverse cultures, both our similarities and differences. Leslie Straub's 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 Fox's 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!
