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! “
Not only for little kids…
Celebrating Australia’s incredible multicultural heritage.
I’m Australian! How about you? Many people from many places have come across the seas, to make Australia their home. How Australian is that?
