From the award-winning Beatrice Alemagna comes ‘What is a Child?’
A rhetorical title which invites us to evaluate further and ultimately embrace each child’s individuality.
In this diverse picture book we celebrate every child’s uniqueness and it provokes us to think about our own identity.
Here, Alemagna explores the true notion of identity and encourages a truly diverse approach to being comfortable in your own skin.
It’s utterly refreshing to see a whole host of children with a range of skin tones, apparel, needs and abilities, in the confines of one book.
This book has an over-arching sensibility and will definitely make any reader consider and reflect further on themselves. It requires us to see the world through the eyes of many children, each with their own take on life.
We defy anyone not to be moved or inclined to stop and think about their own identity.
Perfect for any school, public library, home bookshelf and a must-read for children and adults alike.
