Whoever You Are

The book introduces you to children who live in many different places in the world. Each page, takes you to a different continent. Other students would enjoy reading the book because it would give them a chance to see what it would be like to live in another country or on a different continent.

I enjoyed the book and the characters because they showed me that children everywhere may look differently and live in different places, but they all smile in the same language. They all laugh, cry, and want to be loved,too.

The illustrations were painted with bright oil colors and showed children from different parts of the world. All of the children in the story were like me, even though they came from different cultures.

I would recommend the story to my friends. Children in first, second and third grade would like it. You might like to travel to another part of the world after reading the story.
