Mem Fox is the author of many popular children's books, including Wombat Divine, Time For Bed, Feathers and Fools and Koala Lou.
Not enough children's books celebrate the similarities of people all over the world. But Mem Fox, author of Whoever You Are, has added a special book to the celebration list.
Every day children from all over the world are doing the same things. They are crying, laughing, playing, learning, eating, growing, loving and sleeping. They are all different in appearance; they speak different languages and live different lives. But inside their beings, they are just alike. Their joys, love, pain, smiles and hearts are just the same, no matter where they are or whoever they are. What a joyful thought.
Armchair Interviews says: Whoever You Are is a wonderful addition to a child's library. It is a celebration of the important ways we are all the same.
