Item description for Whoever You Are by Mem Fox & Leslie Staub...

Despite the differences between people around the world, there are similarities that join us together, such as pain, joy, and love.

Publishers 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.
