“All over the world”—Book Review of Whoever You Are
Review by Sarah Mist
This book is more social commentary/poetry on the connection of humanity through similarities beyond race and culture, rather than a story, which I was not expecting. The multicultural illustrations and references are beautiful. While the message is beautiful and corresponding illustrations lovely, the lack of storyline could be better for a younger audience. My seven-year-old son has done a lot of traveling so he could relate to all the cultural “same same but different” images. We had fun finding the global flying guy on each page.… (mere)

I read this for the "A Character Who Is A Senior" part of my 2020 reading challenge. Simply illustrated, it was a touching story of a child collecting memories to help his elderly friend.

This book is appropriate for primary readers.
This book is about all of the different people who reside in Australia and where they hail from.
This book would be useful in teaching about Rhyming and diversity.

Mx loved this book. Got this to promote using Spanish words; may have even been our first Spanish/bilingual book. Funny cute story about a lost sheep that includes lots of adjectives. Ms has been indifferent to it so far.
