In this uplifting picture book, you imagine a world where everyone looks identical, where all food tastes the same, where we all speak the same language. A world that is… well, pretty boring. But with an explosion of colour, the pages soon come to life.
A World for Me and You encourages children to imagine the world as a vast library, with room on the shelves for everybody’s story.
Written by Uju Asika (author of Bringing up Race), and gorgeously illustrated by Jennie Poh, this joyful picture book is an inclusive and life-affirming celebration of our wonderfully diverse world.
Uju says: “I wrote this book so that more kids could see themselves in the story. It’s an antidote to the idea of raising ‘colour blind kids’. We need to raise kids who appreciate themselves and others in all our colours and flavours!
The book makes a helpful conversation starter for talking to kids about diversity, kindness and belonging.”
