Description

Every day all over the world, children are laughing and crying, playing and learning, eating and sleeping. They may not look the same. They may not speak the same language. Their lives may be quite different. But inside, they are all alike. Stirring words and bold paintings weave their way around our earth, across cultures and generations. At a time when, unfortunately, the lessons of tolerance still need to be learned, Whoever You Are urges us to accept our differences, to recognize our similarities, and-most importantly-to rejoice in both.

Our customer reviews

"Our 4 year old daughter has loved this from the first reading nearly 2 years ago. She finds the pictures fascinating, with something to look for on each and every one. She's fascinated by the concept of people being different, yet the same. "show more
